Region Two Forestry Program signs an Articulation Agreement with UMFK
On November 5th, the Forest Management class went to the University of Maine at Fort Kent (UMFK) for a tour of the forestry program. The Director of Region Two, Dave Keaton, was on hand to sign the articulation agreement for another year. The articulation agreement lets students in the Region Two Forest Management class receive 8 college credits towards the Forest Technology degree at UMFK. 3 credits for chainsaw safety, 3 credits for Forestry 100 and 2 credits for Wildland Fire Training. This agreement allows students to gain college level knowledge in high school while saving them money and time when they attend college.
The students listened to a presentation by Professor Jeff Dubis. They also toured the forestry lab and went to a Red Pine plantation where they looked at some harvesting work done by the college Forestry class.
