I had a great time learning with this course. The readings are accessible, and concepts are easy to understand. The activities and assessments enhance and reinforce the ideas and learnings. I am grateful I took it and recommend it.

It’s a marvellous course! By teaching the basic concepts of community forestry, the course will inspire you to explore forests in a broader sense.

This course taught me so much. The knowledge I gained was key to writing my senior thesis and will help me with my plans for a career in conservation after graduation. Thank you RECOFTC!

It was satisfying to take this online course because I could reflect on my learning progress using a workbook and a guided assignment. I look forward to more RECOFTC courses such as this one.
