Mission, BC – The City of Mission forestry department is launching a new book during National Forestry Week to celebrate over 60 years of managing a municipal forest. “The Tree Farm – the Evolution of Canada’s First Community Forest”, captures the history of Mission’s Tree Farm Licence #26, guiding readers through the 10,000-hectare diverse eco-system, highlighting the importance of the area to First Nation Communities, the province, and Mission community. The event takes place on Friday, September 24 at 7:00 pm at Steelhead Hall and is in partnership with the Mission Folk Music Festival, which has a new event series, Folk and Words, which partners musical artists with authors in performance spaces. The evening will include book readings from author Michelle Rhodes and music from third-generation logger John Gogo.
