Publisher: Society of American Foresters
Abstract:The Minnesota Sustainable Forests Education Cooperative was formed to provide a forum for technology transfer between scientists and practitioners and to enhance interdisciplinary interaction. This cooperative model is an ongoing experiment that recognizes the importance of continuing education that brings resource professionals together from a variety of resource disciplines and employer groups. The inherent strengths and efficiencies of the cooperative structure must be supported by careful attention to ongoing challenges, including funding.
