Happy 5th Annual Woodlands Appreciation Week!

This year’s theme highlight and celebrates the diverse products and gifts we enjoy from the woodlot!

Throughout the week of May 12th the OWA will be highlighting both the traditional wood products we obtain from our woodlots, and also the non-tangible products and gifts. 

The week will include fun and educational activities that members can engage in each day throughout the week. The activities will be posted on all of our social media platforms and sent out by email each day. 

We have also planned three province-wide webinars for OWA members.

Pre-registration is required. Pre-register for each event by clicking the link below or by locating the event in the Event Calendar
