Forester Time with Sarah Maddison – Forest Tech: GIS, Remote Sensing and UAVs

Lesson Overview:

Within this ForestLearning Forester Time video, join Sarah Maddison from HV Plantations as she shares about the wonderful, sustainable world of forestry. Learn about the fun tech that Sarah uses everyday in her work in forestry, including flying drones, LiDAR mapping and more! Also learn how her work is truly making a world of difference in growing healthy forests that store carbon and fight climate change, and how they are working to produce the ultimate renewable resource.

This recording was presented in November 2020 for ForestLearning and Primary Industry Education Foundation’s Forester Time live school webinar event for high schools.  This webinar follows a successful series of similar webinars held earlier in 2020 and continues to connect teachers and students directly with forest and wood processing professionals, out in the field, in real-time. Forester time is basically a field-trip with field host, but with none of the risk, hassle or expense!

The initiative allows students to learn more about the daily work of foresters, sustainable forest management and career pathways.
