A Real Life “Lorax” Comes to Beaver Valley

September 18, 2012 | By: Beaver Valley Ski Club
Do you want to DO something that makes a difference? That’s meaningful and will carry forward to help create a better future for your children and theirs?

As an action step in our sustainable path at Beaver Valley, we’d like to invite you, our members, to be a part of our sustainable forest management plan and take part in our Tree Planting Beautification Day on Saturday April 28th, 2012 from 9am-12pm.

Yes, we’ve certainly chosen the most stereotypical environmentalist activity to do this with, but do not be confused, this is no ordinary little tree planting activity. Local sustainable forest management expert Skeet Sutherland (aka. The Lorax) will guide participants through an eye-opening and inspiring session where you will learn to look at our forests through different eyes. We will then get dirty planting seedlings, with a focus on native species, in a location that has been identified by Skeet and our operations team as ideal for seedlings.  These trees are a part of a greater plan to increase wildlife habitat, prevent disease and infestations, and to ensure that the forests on our property are going to live on for future generations. Rest assured they will be bottle fed and tucked in on cold nights. When all is done, Chef Keith will serve us up a tasty BBQ lunch (complimentary for your hard work and participation). This is a family friendly event  (Adults are asked to supervise their children). Meet on the North Deck at 9am rain or shine, and bring gloves and a shovel if you have onemailto:mail@beavervalley.ca

“Catch! calls the Once-ler.
He lets something fall.
It’s a Truffula Seed.
It’s the last one of all!
You’re in charge of the last of the Truffula Seeds.
And Truffula Trees are what everyone needs.
Plant a new Truffula. Treat it with care.
Give it clean water. And feed it fresh air.
Grow a forest. Protect it from axes that hack.
Then the Lorax
and all of his friends
may come back.”
– From “The Lorax”, Dr. Seuss
