York Region recognized as a Forest Champion

Bill Fisch Forest Stewardship and Education Centre

Earlier this month, York Region was recognized among the best at the 2017 Forest Stewardship Council Leadership Awards held at the Greenbuild International Conference and Expo.

The awards celebrate people, companies and buildings breaking new ground and promoting responsible forest management. York Region and DIALOG were recognized for using 100 percent FSC-certified wood in constructing the Bill Fisch Forest Stewardship and Education Centre and for sharing information about sustainability to thousands of visitors each year.

The Forest Stewardship Council is an independent nonprofit organization that promotes environmentally sound, socially beneficial, and economically prosperous management of the world’s forests.
