Forestry is a progressive and rapidly changing industry. It not only plays a key role in forest stewardship but contributes to the social health and economic vitality of dozens of communities throughout Alberta. Millar Western welcomes the opportunity to share information about its operations and industry through facility visits and open houses.
Tours and Classroom Visits
Public tours are conducted in the summer months through the Whitecourt Chamber of Commerce, which leads groups through forest products facilities operating in the Whitecourt area, including Millar Western’s lumber and pulp mills. Contact the Chamber of Commerce for more information.
Upon prior arrangement and providing operational schedules allow, Millar Western can accommodate industry, educational and community groups who have an interest in sustainable resource development. To arrange a visit, contact Corporate Communications.
Millar Western supports Inside Education™, a nonprofit registered charity that provides in-class and in-field natural resource and environment education focused on forests, water, energy and related topics. This organization is an excellent resource for educators looking to expand their knowledge of resource management in Alberta.
Huestis Demonstration Forest
Each spring, Millar Western hosts open houses to discuss its forest management plans for the year ahead. As well as sharing information about the location of harvesting and forest renewal operations, these events allow the public to meet our forest managers, exchange ideas and discuss issues. Visit this website regularly for dates and locations, or contact Corporate Communications.
