The Foothills Model Forest is one of eleven Model Forests that make up the Canadian Model Forest Network. The Foothills Model Forest is located in Hinton, Alberta and is a non-profit corporation representing a wide array of industrial, academic, government, and non-government partners. The three principal partners/sponsors representing the agencies with vested management authority for the lands that comprise the Foothills Model Forest include Weldwood of Canada Limited (Hinton Division), the Alberta Department of Environmental Protection, and Jasper National Park. The Model Forest lands encompass a combined area of more than 2.75 million hectares under active resource management.
The Canadian Forest Service of Natural Resources Canada is also a principal partner in each of the eleven Model Forest organizations and provides the primary funding and administrative support to Canada's Model Forest Program.
