TAKE YOUR STUDENTS BACK IN TIME! The Friends of the Forestry Farm Park invite you to experience a bit of Saskatchewan history. Come to the Superintendent's Residence in the Forestry Farm Park for a lesson in conservation, a historical tour of the Forestry Farm House and Park, and information on the trees that shaped our province.
Our trained volunteers will lead you and your students in a tour which includes information on the day-to-day operations and life at the Dominion Forestry Farm in the early part of the 20th century. The tour and activities can be tailored to a one, two or three hour time period and may include a walking tour, a poster made with tree rubbings, and a shelterbelt model and demo. There is plenty of space and a kitchen available for snacks, if you wish to bring them.
