North Hastings students recognize the benefits of living with trees

Two hundred and fifty grade seven and eight students helped the Local Wood Initiative team by brainswarming the beneftits of living with trees at the  BAFIA Forestry Day at Joy Bible Camp on May 28, 2014. Each student wrote down the importance of trees and forests to them, how they use wood and any job they coud think of related to trees. Together they came up with great lists.

Jessica Kaknevicius of Forests Ontario did a similar project when she asked girl guides in Toronto what "They loved about trees". They said trees helps them breath, provides shade, are beautiful, gives nature and stuff, provides maple syrup, fruit, beauty and are good for climbing.
