Algonquin Park: A Case Study
Did you know that Algonquin Park has over 2,000 kilometres of canoe routes and portages across hundreds of lakes and rivers, nearly 2,000 camp sites, and that it attracts over a million visitors a year?
Algonquin Park is a great example of how we manage our forests for a variety of values. It also provides a sanctuary for many kinds of wildlife including moose, deer, beaver, turtles, woodpeckers, owls and the elusive and mysterious eastern wolf – to name only a few. Check out the Wildlife page to learn more.
At the same time, it provides the wood we need to make a wide variety of products such as the lumber we use in our homes, utility poles to transport electricity to our schools, and even firewood that we burn to keep warm during the winter.
Our ability to manage for all of the benefits and values at the same time is what makes Ontario a world leader in forestry.
