We are proud to support Scouts Canada in educating youth about how to use natural resources wisely. One of our favorite partnerships is during the annual Canadian Scout Jamboree.  This year a number of unique certified wood products were donated — like these canoe paddles that will stay with CJ’13. Pictured here are two of the of the 100 custom-made paddles made by Oconto Paddles with SFI ® certified from International Forest Products Limited (Interfor).

The Western Canada SFI Implementation Committee also contributed 4,800 pieces of certified lumber to help build mobile kitchen shelters for the event.  We hope everyone at CJ ’13 had a great time and learned a little more about how to keep forests thriving.
