Ufor school

An intensive one-week hands-on summer or early fall school in socio-ecological urban planning and applications of urban forestry is offered annually to all funded trainees. These field schools are great opportunities for our trainees to meet other students in their field from across Canada but also an opportunity to discuss and learn from the top national and international experts in the field of urban forestry across Canada.

2022 Field School

The next field school will take place in Charlottetown before The Canadian Urban Forest Conference. More details will be posted here soon.

First summer school in 2021

In late August 2021, we had our first Ufor field school in a hybrid format (in person and online). Ufor trainees groups met in person in 3 different cities across Canada (Toronto, Montreal and Halifax) and completed half days in field courses that addressed a daily theme. These field courses were held at 1 or 2 sites across their respective cities and included meetings with different practitioners. In the afternoon, all the groups met online to attend a seminar, share field observations from each cities and discussed the daily theme. Here are a few pictures from the 2021 summer school.
