Explore York Region’s forest wonderland this spring



Newmarket – When it comes to fun and the forest, York Region has you covered. Join us for the Spring Forest Festival this Saturday, May 12 to explore the York Regional Forest and visit the Bill Fisch Forest Stewardship and Education Centre.

When:
Saturday, May 12, 2018
10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Where:
Bill Fisch Forest Stewardship Education Centre
York Regional Forest, Hollidge Tract 16389 Hwy 48, Town of Whitchurch-Stouffville

Event details:

The public and members of the media are invited to tour our award-winning eco-building and experience the Bill Fisch Forest Stewardship and Education Centre. Discover how the building is constructed from locally-sourced and re-purposed materials, captures rainwater and creates its own electricity.

Come out and explore the forest, walk or roll on the accessible trail or enjoy a horse-drawn wagon ride. You can even take home a tree seedling of your own to plant. Join us rain or shine to meet forestry staff and be inspired.
