Treemendous -feature exhibit at Museum
Come and experience Treemendous — a new exhibit at the Ladysmith Museum that brings the forest’s lush history to life. Learn from illustrative and informative displays of how we benefit from our trees. Look at the latest science exploring how BC’s most essential ecosystem works and discover how our culture, economy and environment hinge on our local forests. Discover how new challenges are changing our forests and why it’s essential we know how we can protect them.
For Ladysmith & District Historical Society president Quentin Goodbody, the most surprising fact he learned was that forest fires have existed even before trees evolved. Goodbody headed up the research on the project. The team included Cheryl Bancroft and Gordon Filewych, and Western Forest Products sponsored the exhibit.
