The annual Logger Days festival is an eduction-based series of summer days where the local communities showcase their forest stewardship heritage. Started over 60 years ago, it long been used to educate the local population about forest management, forest management machinery and techniques and forest management cultural norms.
While Logger Days serves as an educational reminder of the realities of forest management for local people, it also serves a larger audience in the many visitors who come from outside of the community to learn about forestry and the forestry culture. Since society has expressed dual desires to protect forested lands with wise management techniques and make ecologically sound decisions regarding the appropriate use of wood and wood fiber items, the need to educate the public about forests and their management has never been greater.
Educational exhibits, displays and demonstrations have and will often reflect not just current equipment and techniques but also teach of the rich history of forest management over the last two centuries.
Logger Days Buttons are required for entrance to Grounds. Buttons allow entrance to all festivities. Button prices are $8 in advance or $15 at the gate. Children under the age of 12 are free.
