Haliburton Forest and Wild Life Reserve
Though the privately-owned Haliburton Forest began as a land-clearing logging operation in the mid-19th century, the forest is now praised for its sustainable logging practices. Haliburton Forest is one of the first in Canada to earn a "responsible forest" certification from the Forest Stewardship Council. Company foresters operate on a single-tree selection process, cutting down only mature or weak trees to ensure the long-term health of the forest. In addition, more than half of Haliburton's forest revenue comes from the forest's many recreational opportunities, including dog sledding, snowmobiling, cross country skiing, hiking and mountain biking.
Visitors can also tour the sawmill, explore the logging museum, or purchase a handmade item from the wood-working shop. At the Wolf Center, several wolves roam freely in a 15-acre enclosure. A large indoor observatory enables visitors to observe the wolf pack through one-way glass and to listen to them through special speakers. An informative exhibition area, movie theatre and gift shop provide lots of information about the life and history of wolves. Beyond the center, there are three wild wolf packs who call the forest home.
