More details about the episodes:
The first episode, “The Road to Sustainability,” explores the history of our relationship with the forests – from being home to Indigenous peoples to being an obstacle to settlement for Europeans. It looks at the evolution from exploitation to stewardship, culminating in Ontario becoming a leader in sustainable forest management. It can be viewed at https://youtu.be/YbinZOExCBg.
The second episode, “New Forests, New Stewards, A Road Forward,” delves deeper into sustainable forest management on Crown and private lands and in urban forests, while highlighting challenges faced by Ontario’s forests and opportunities for youth to get involved.
