We are dedicated to informing the public about forests and the forest industry by promoting forest awareness through education. Most of our work focuses on children - the decision makers of the future.
Splinter Activity Books
The Splinter Activity Books are designed for students in grades K-8 and include word facts, puzzles, games and worksheets, drawing and colouring projects. Younger children will enjoy "Fun in the Forest", while older kids will love the challenges in "Logging with Splinter". Teachers can use various pages as classroom activities. We have given away thousands of copies of both books to happy forest exporers across the province. Contact us for copies, or download a copy below.
The Canadian Women in Timber are excited to launch our newest educational book called Wood Facts. It joins our Forestry Facts in a series of ‘test your IQ’ question and answer books. With this new book we are also pleased to introduce two new characters who guide the reader through the book. They are named Cookie and Spruce. Cookie—a robust and jolly fellow—is made from a slice off the end of a log. He loves to ask people to guess how old he is! Cookie’s partner is Spruce. This lanky and fashionable gal is a 2x4 cut from a spruce log. She is proud of the fact that she is a sink for greenhouse gasses and is helping to combat climate change!
