APPLY: Country Historical Schools Commemorative Sign

Posted in News Releases

APPLY: Country Historical Schools Commemorative Sign

Yellowhead County and Grande Yellowhead Public School Division are providing signage to preserve the memory of the locations of former and still standing historical one-room County schoolhouses. County residents are encouraged to honour these sites by applying for a country school commemorative sign.

Over two dozen successful applications have been received and include stories, historical dates, and anecdotes about the schools. Many of the schools were built over 100 years ago and are no longer standing, though they once played a crucial role in educating the many residents that contributed to the development and growth of our region.

Applications for 2017 are available and can be picked up from Yellowhead County. Please contact the County office at 1-800-665-6030 for more information.

Weyerhaeuser Donates 100 Trees to Yellowhead County

Wildwood recently got a little greener. Forestry giant Weyerhaeuser donated 100 of its nursery’s Lodgepole Pine trees to Yellowhead County, and the trees are happily taking root in Wildwood.

The County’s parks crew planted the trees over a couple of days in early August in Gunner Rehn Park. The trees are a welcome addition to the landscaping and privacy screening initiatives in the area—especially around Wildwood’s new pump track.
