VANCOUVER – National Forest Week, held September 24-30 this year, is a time to reflect on and learn more about the importance of forests. …”National Forest Week provides BC families with opportunities to learn more about our forests. Whether it’s a walk in the woods, a talk in the classroom, or a showcase of the critters that live in the forest, adults and children alike can see how registered forest professionals are managing BC’s forests for a wide range of uses including recreation, wildlife habitat, timber harvesting, and other values of importance to British Columbians.” said Bill Bourgeois of the National Forest Week BC Coalition. ...National Forest Week events happen in communities across BC. A partial listing of events is available on the Canadian Forestry Association website.
