Alexandra Farkas, a 2021 graduate of the Daniels Faculty's Master of Forest Conservation program, has been named a recipient of a White Pine Award, a prize given by Forests Ontario at its annual conference. The award recognizes student contributions to forest education and awareness.
This year's Forests Ontario conference was held online, and so Alexandra received her award remotely. She was one of two recipients. The other, Alexandra Lalande, is a graduate of Fleming College's forestry technician program. In a press release, Forests Ontario commended both women for their help with the organization's promotion and outreach efforts.
Forests Ontario is a not-for-profit organization that supports tree planting, forest restoration, forest stewardship, and forest education throughout the province. Their forestry conference is the largest of its kind in Ontario. To find out more about their programs, visit the Forests Ontario website.
