Junior Forester Academy

Children ages 9-11 welcome!  Senior Forester Academy 

The Junior Forester Academy (JFA) is the first step in the Centennial Forest's Environmental Education Program.

JFA offers a hands-on introduction to the world of forestry and environmental science, connecting youth to the outdoors so that they can learn and teach others about environmental stewardship, land ethics and forest health. JFA is a week-long, overnight program with healthy meals and snacks provided.

Our number one goal is to have fun while exploring the forest! Campers will learn how to measure forest biodiversity, tree diameters and how to identify native and exotic plants. They will create walking sticks, help with ecological restoration, participate in the Logger Olympics and much more!
