Proclamation: Forestry Appreciation Day

Whereas

Forestry is one of the largest resource industries in Alberta; and,

Whereas

Our forest provides us with renewable resources that can be used such as paper, facial tissue, toilet paper, lumber and building materials for our homes; and,

Whereas

Forestry companies are using wood residuals like sawdust and woodchips to generate power ; and,

Whereas

Animals and insects rely on the forest as a place to live and humans rely on the forest for recreation, wood products, and oxygen; and,

Whereas

Forestry provides local youth with educational and career opportunities; and,

Whereas

Communities connect with local forestry resources to train our future generations

 Be it Resolved

That the Mayor and Council of the Town of Peace River hereby procliam November 8, 2017 as “Forestry Appreciation Day,” in the Town of Peace River.
