Forest History Sign Tour

Whether you see it or not, the land around you is steeped in history.  There is evidence everywhere that shows how the forces of nature interacted with the forces of man to create what you see today.

The Malcolm Knapp Research Forest History Sign Tour is a self guided tour that has been created to help you navigate the forest while you learn along the way. Participating in the tour will:

  • Enlighten you as you journey through the forest
  • Take you to areas of the forest you might not otherwise visit
  • Combine education with physical activity
  • Explain what you see around you today in the context of the forest’s rich history.

The map available on this page has been referenced with GPS coordinates in order to help you find your way around the forest and navigate between the tour signs.  Please download “Avenza Maps” – a free app available from your favourite app store. Upload the Forest History Sign map into Avenza and you will see exactly where you are on the map, and it will help guide you through this adventure.
