Forests: United Nations International Year of Forests: 2011

Dec-17-2010 - Apr-30-2011


"The year 2011 was declared the International Year of Forests by the United Nations to raise awareness and strengthen the sustainable forest management, conservation and sustainable development of all types of forests for the benefit of current and future generations."*

We have displayed books on a wide range of forest topics and have included a world forest map by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations. The University of Lethbridge Art Gallery loaned two wonderful forest paintings by Margaret Shelton. Thanks also to Linda Many Guns who lent some petrified wood.
