AAA Editor Notes

Sandilands Forest Discovery Centre (Manitoba Forestry Association), about 2 km (1.2 mi.) s. of jct. hwys. 1 and 11, tells visitors about forest conservation, reforestation and fire prevention. A train car used 1919-74 to promote the nationwide planting of trees is shown, an electronic display tests tree species knowledge and a museum has area plants and animals, and hand-carvings of Smokey Bear. The Old Beaver Dam Trail, reached by a suspension bridge over the Whitemouth River, penetrates aspen parkland and a boreal forest. The Sagimay Trail contains chainsaw sculptures while the Dawson Cabin shows heritage forest firefighting and forest management equipment. Guided tours of the center are available.
Donations. Reservations are required for guided group tours.
Hours: By appointment only. Allow 1 hour minimum.
