Fleming College Forestry program
celebrates 50 years with alumni reunion
Alumni of Fleming College’s Forestry program were invited to commemorate a major milestone in partnership with Forests Ontario. In 2017, Fleming’s Forestry program will celebrate its 50th anniversary. Forests Ontario helped mark the occasion by hosting a Fleming alumni reunion in conjunction with its annual Conference.

Rob Keen, Forests Ontario CEO, said, “Ontario’s forestry sector includes 180,000 professionals whose work supports innumerable social, economic, and environmental benefits throughout our communities. For decades, Fleming’s forestry programs have been responsible for the training of so many of those who have made our province a globally recognized leader in the sustainable management of forest resources.”

Every year, Forests Ontario Annual Conference brings together more than 300 landowners, forestry professionals, students, educator and those passionate about our forests to explore key issues. Sessions at the 2017 Conference discussed how it takes a forest to build healthy communities and a robust and prosperous society.

Fleming Forestry graduates from all years were invited to attend the reunion and networking event that took place at the Nottawasaga Inn in Alliston, Ontario on Feb. 9.

Forestry, now a two-year diploma program with an optional co-op, was the first program offered within Fleming’s School of Environmental and Natural Resource Sciences and is today the largest in Canada.
