Expanding trails - The Daily Observer - Ontario, CA

"On Aug. 25, county council learned about a proposal by members of the Renfrew County Stewardship Program and the Shaw family of Shaw Lumber fame, to develop the Shaw Woods Outdoor Education Centre.

The presentation was made by Wayne Remus, chairman of the project, and a member of the stewardship's steering committee.

In his presentation he described the group's intention to further expand the trail system at the Shaw Woods off County Road 9, as well as develop viewing platforms and a central office, all for the purpose of educating the public about sustainable forestry and good stewardship.

The site is already popular with people wanting to take a stroll in the woods, surrounded by some old growth forest."
