Forestry Resources for Teachers:
"Gypo Logging- The Board Game": Somewhat similar to Trivial Pursuit and Monopoly, but with content unique to the forest industry. Stops along the board include land use issues, daily mishaps, ministry regulations, stumpage and many other harvesting challenges, as the players travel around the board using action cards. To find out more or to order a game, see www.gypologging.com
