Community Events: The 2019 Grey Bruce Forest Festival will be held this year from October 1st-3rd. This event, held at Allan Park Conservation Area, is for students in grade 7 to learn about the many ways forests are important to our community. Approximately 30 stations are scattered throughtout the park to teach about employment opportunities, resorce management, wildlife conservation and a host of other issues. Master Gardeners have helped to foster an appreciation of this important resource by manning the Forest Feast station since 2010. In our time with each group, we look at many plants that have been utilized for food by indigenous people, settlers and communities today. We look forward to another great event this fall.
