Nat'l Forest Week with Percy Baxter Students

 

 

For National Forest Week, Grade 6 Percy Baxter Students visited the Huestis Demonstration Forest, just outside Whitecourt to learn more about how to be stewards of our environment.

 

Team Lead for Inside Education Student Programs, Pamela Learmond says the program teaches the kids about forests with hands on activities and a fun day surrounded by nature.

 

 

AESRD Regional Education and Outreach Specialist for the Upper Athabasca Region, Heather Robertson says anyone can visit the area - just 12 km northwest of Whitecourt.  

 

 

The Huestis Demo Forest is used to show how the forest industry works while still sustaining a healthy and diverse forest. 

 

Current partners for the HDF are Environment and Sustainable Resource Development, Millar Western, Alberta Newsprint Company, Blue Ridge Lumber, Whitecourt Trailblazers, Woodlands County, and Inside Education.
