Kortright Centre for Conservation: Forestry Theme.
One of a series of four reports on specific conservation themes, this report on forestry is intended to consolidate techniques which will best communicate the legislation, role, objectives and practices of the Metropolitan Toronto and Region Conservation Authority in retaining forest cover and extending it over additional areas. Facilities and programs used by the Kortright Centre for Conservation to give visitors an understanding and appreciation of the forest, its use, and its management as a renewable natural resource are described. Key elements of a successful program are listed as positive messages, relevance, entertaining presentation, and active participation. The components used to develop the Forestry Theme are described, and include audio/visual presentations, indoor exhibits, outdoor demonstrations and exhibits, and sale of related publications, merchandise and food (i.e. maple syrup). The final section outlines programs offered at the Centre for organized groups, such as classes or special interest clubs; for the general public; and for groups that use the Centre's facilities for meetings.
