Forestry Education

PCFC will continue supplementing and supporting the highly successful forestry program at Priest River Lamanna High School.  Headed by science teacher, Jared Hughes, students engage in classroom and field studies during both semesters.

There are first semester forestry classes being offered as well as the “honors” advanced forestry class during second semester.  Field trips to the PREF, to harvest sites and elsewhere and engaging professionals in and outside the classroom, enrich the students’ knowledge about their forests and the intricacies of ecosystems.  The class then participates in the annual Idaho State Forestry Contest in May.
