Forest (Reads) Initiative Course:
Forest(Reads) is a joint initiative between the Faculty of Forestry’s Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Council and the Associate Dean, Academic of the Faculty. The Initiative has a canvas course that anyone with a UBC affiliation can register in, which can be accessed here (https://canvas.ubc.ca/courses/69762).
The course allows participants access to discussion boards as well as access links for our zoom conversations. Participants in the course will be entered in a book draw in early February for a few copies of Braiding Sweetgrass!
