SC Teachers' Tour

The SC Teachers’ Tour is a project of the SC Forestry Foundation. Selected teachers are given a first-hand experience of the woods and mills of South Carolina. The focus of the tour is the impact forests have on our state’s environment, economy, and quality of life.  A wide range of topics related to sustainable forestry are covered during online assignments and the tour, including the history of the forestry profession in the US, forest management practices, the diversity of forest land ownership and management in SC,  wildlife management and biodiversity, harvesting operations and best management practices, and forest products from a variety of industries located in the state.
