Log A Load For Kids

by Gretchen MarshalllogaloadAndKids.gif
The Shell Lake School Forest hosted a Log A Load for Kids event which was sponsored by the Northwest Chapter of the Wisconsin Professional Loggers Association. The mission of the Log A Load for Kids program is to raise fund for the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.

This two day event hosted approximately 1100 students from schools throughout Northwest Wisconsin. Students toured the forest and participated in various lessons reflecting on wildlife found in our forests, harvesting timber with horses, how power machines cut trees, and so much more. Students were able to witness a timber harvest taking place in real time and understand the economic importance of Wisconsin’s forest resource.
