Cranbrook Community Forest Society is the happy recipient of a $1,110.00 donation from the EKCCU as a result of the Cash Award Program the Credit Union sponsored this spring. Out of 14 applications, we came in third. Our project is explaining the thinning work that was done in the C.C.F. that took place this past winter and the resulting effects on natural forest regeneration, including related information about our Society's history and educational goals.
This money will go towards constructing the informational kiosk site in the Forest explaining four demonstration plots of varying tree stem densities and how the forest density affects overall forest health and tree growth.
