Object & Deliverables
The primary goal of this project was to promote a greater understanding of the forest ecosystem as a whole as well as the role of history and research in developing current forest management practices.
Specific project objectives included continuing to meet the needs of local/central Alberta communities; continuing to offer on-site Des Crossley Demonstration Forest day or overnight programs, off-site Integrated Landscape Management (ILM)-focused site tours around Rocky Mountain House, classroom presentations, print resources, and teacher professional development to all interested teachers, students and community groups; maintaining current levels of on-site programming; and maintaining current levels of on-site programming.
During the 2007 spring & autumn sessions 6,584 participants were reached, including direct delivery during field programs, in-school presentations, and the new Integrated Landscape Management (ILM) Program.
Project results are contained in the ten-page 2007 Inside Education Annual Report entitled “Des Crossley Demonstration Forest & Integrated Landscape Management Programs.”
