Dehradun --- About
The State Forest College, Dehradun is one
of the leading institutions under the aegis of Directorate of Forest
Education, Ministry of Environment & Forests which imparts initial and
in-service training to the State Forest Service Officers.
Established in 1981, the State Forest Service College has specially
developed programmes and activities for this purpose.
The college was started in the building in which the Northern Forest
Rangers College(NFRC) was already functioning. With the establishment of
the SFS College the NFRC was shifted to its Dehradun city building. The
main building was constructed in 1946.
The building has a special design, in the sense, it gives a frontal view
from both of its eastern and western sides. Its design was made to give
adequate resemblance with the main building of the campus i.e. FRI
Building, which lies adjacent to the former. The college premise have been
carved out of the main FRI Campus. The college has two trainees’ hostels,
viz North Hostel and South Hostel. Both were constructed in the year 1967.
