Lorne Renouf has been teaching forestry at the college level since 1993, where he taught at several institutions in eastern Canada and has been in Prince Albert since the fall of 2000.
He began his career in forestry as a logger cutting pulpwood in Nova Scotia, and then returning to NL for the same type of work. Lorne started his education in Newfoundland where he worked seasonally while attending college.
