8th Annual Bruce Grey Forest Festival this week

Hundreds of students will be hiking through a Grey County conservation area this week.   It’s the annual Bruce-Grey Forest Festival.

Over 900 grade seven students from across the two counties will visit the Allan Park Conservation Area from Tuesday to Thursday.

The Festival provides hands-on curriculum-based opportunities for students to explore and learn about forest resources.

Twenty-nine different activity stations will be set up through-out the forests of the Conservation Area.

They include investigations into invasive species, forest management, tree identification and climate change.
