Educational opportunities focused on the development and use of a demonstration forest south of Rocky Mountain House. Specific project objectives were as follows:
- Provision of a self-interpretive site for educating the public about forestry;
- Provision of a site and programming so educator preparation time and student time could be minimized and maximized, respectively;
- Education of educators so they could apply their expertise in teaching newly learned forestry concepts;
- Education of students in an outdoor learning environment.
