What's at the Forest Festival

The Bruce Grey Forest Festival has 32 hands-on, interactive activity centers that are educational and fun for elementary school students. Our goal is for students to enjoy themselves using cross-curricular skills to learn about our forest resources and the interconnections with the environment. The festival will motivate students to become forest stewards within their home environment and their community. By combining the hands-on, interactive activities with messages relevant to their daily lives, students will develop an understanding of the need to manage our forest resources sustainably and for the long-term benefit of our citizens and the stewardship the of our environment.
