Forest lands are managed for many different uses. A “working forest” means more than a harvest area. It’s also carefully planned to incorporate tourism, sport, regeneration of forest stands, wildlife, and other types of recreation and activities, like camping.
West Fraser's support of organizations like the Foothills Recreation Management Association (FRMA) in Alberta is one way to enjoy the "great outdoors." The FRMA maintains several trails, recreation areas and campgrounds that can be enjoyed by anyone with a sense of adventure and the willingness to explore. However, exploring an area near an active forestry operation demands a little extra awareness and attention. See our tips for safe travel in the exploring managed forest lands page.
