This teacher took part in Forestry Connects - a Forests Ontario program aimed at increasing awareness of forest management planning, forest sector career opportunities and the nature of our forests in Ontario by providing direct, hands-on experience to high school youth.

In 2013, 38 students and teachers travelled to Algonquin Park to learn more about forest management in one of Ontario's largest and most famous public parks.

The students spent 3 days learning about the history of forest management, current day practices, and the making of the final product.

Participants walked through the process of forest management from start to finish, engaging with the variety of stakeholders involved in the process.

Special thanks to the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources and our partners: Ontario Wood, Algonquin Forestry Authority, McRae Lumber, Ontario Parks, Algonquin's of Ontario and the Friends of Algonquin Park.
