On April 25th an eager and lively group of young people from Vancouver spent the day exploring the Mt. Richmond Forest. With an overall goal of investigating where wood comes from and how it gets from a forest to the pavillion they are building, the students explored forest processes from tiny seedlings, to large trees, and on through milling a log to lumber and loading it into their school bus.

Since their visit, we have logged 7,000 BF of fir logs and sent them by tree taxi to the Urban Timberworks mill where they have been milled into the necessary timbers and lumber. We look forward to seeing the finished product.
