The Bruce Grey Forest Festival is a three day event open to Grade 7 students across Bruce and Grey Counties. Activities are focused within the broad categories of forest ecosystems and interactions, forest resource management and sustainability, biodiversity and species at risk, climate change and stewardship and conservation.

The first annual Bruce Grey Forest Festival was held at Allan Park Management Unit on October 19, 20 & 21, 2010. Approximately 1000 elementary school students, secondary school students and volunteers got the opportunity to learn the importance of forest resources, the environment and their interdependence in an actual forest setting!



"The thing that makes our event are the students that attend! Since we have too many schools that are unable to participate this fall, we have had to cancel the 2015 Forest Festival. We will be expanding next year's event though to make room for Grade Eight students that missed their opportunity this year!"
