You may have noticed a new billboard on the Highway.
Located just west of the City of Kenora along Highway 17, the billboard was developed under the province-wide It Takes A Forest public awareness initiative.
It recognizes the important environmental benefits of wood products, including their ability to sequester carbon and fight climate change.
The It Takes A Forest initiative is designed to increase public awareness of the management of Ontario’s forests through the dissemination of fact-based information. The initiative aims to reach Ontarians across the province with the message that forests are central to our lives.
To date, a dozen billboards have been erected across the province highlighting the importance of the forest sector.
