The MN SIC received $5,000 to fund a partnership with the MN Historical Society to develop an educational kiosk that will target 4,000 students visiting the Forest History Center each year. The kiosk will consist of a 5-minute video about the SFI® program and display of SFI labeled products.
Supporting the SFI Standard
The project will support SFI 2010-2014 Standard Objective 17: Community Involvement in the Practice of Sustainable Forestry, including Performance Measure 17.2 requiring that program participants support and promote public outreach, education and involvement related to sustainable forestry management.
In addition to the Minnesota SFI Implementation Committee, partners include the Minnesota Historical Society, Forest History Center.
