PORT McNEILL—B.C.’s Forest Week drew a big turnout of little people last week.

Staff of the Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations hosted a presentation on Vancouver Island predators at Gate House Community Theatre last Wednesday. With pelts, skulls and claws of cougar, bears and wolves, the presentation was quickly tailored to a young audience as the First Port McNeill Cub Scouts and Beavers used their meeting night to attend.

Saturday, dozens of prospective loggers-to-be filled Centennial Ball Field for a Kids Logger Sports Day.

Events included the nail drive, a hand pump accuracy test, cookie toss, choker relay and a wheelbarrow relay, as well as an arts and crafts station and face painting. The event also offered assorted prizes and free hot dogs.
