What is a RSS Feed? How to view RSS?
RSS (Really Simple Syndication) is a family of Web feed formats used to publish frequently updated content such as blog entries, news headlines or podcasts. An RSS document, which is called a "feed," "web feed," or "channel," contains either a summary of content from an associated web site or the full text. RSS makes it possible for people to keep up with their favorite web sites in an automated manner that's easier than checking them manually.

RSS content can be read using software called an "RSS reader," "feed reader" or an "aggregator." The user subscribes to a feed by entering the feed's link into the reader or by clicking an RSS icon in a browser that initiates the subscription process. The reader checks the user's subscribed feeds regularly for new content, downloading any updates that it finds.

The initials "RSS" are used to refer to the following formats:

* Really Simple Syndication (RSS 2.0)
* RDF Site Summary (RSS 1.0 and RSS 0.90)
* Rich Site Summary (RSS 0.91)

RSS formats are specified using XML, a generic specification for the creation of data formats.

Education remains a top proirity for Discovery Centre
by: Dana Trapp

If a day exploring the great outdoors is part of your summer vacation plans, the Sandilands Forest Discovery Centre - located near Hadashville - is definitely worth a visit.

Operated by the Manitoba Forestry Association, a non-profit organization whose mandate is to teach Manitobans about the importance of trees and forest conservation, the Discovery Centre was established in 1957 when the land was granted to the Manitoba Forestry Association by the provincial government for the purpose of conducting education programming about forest conservation.

According to Michaelea Knispel of the Manitoba Forestry Association, the Centre remains true to its original vision of providing an outdoor teaching facility where young and old can learn about the importance of the forest ecosystem.

“The Sandilands is a little bit of a hidden gem in Eastern Manitoba. Visitors to the centre can hike our three trails, cross the Whitemouth River on our swinging suspension bridge, tour the historic CPR Tree Planting Rail Car dating back to the 1950’s, visit the Dawson Cabin which is Manitoba’s first Ranger station, or just stop in for a picnic,” said Knispel.

“This year we are offering a variety of interpretive programs on weekends including guided hikes, family program and games on a variety of topics such as bears, heritage, insects, non-timber forest products among many others.”

During the months of May and June, the Centre offers programming for school groups and in July and August they are open to the public. The centre is open from July 2 to August 26, Thursdays to Mondays from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and admission is free.

The Sandilands Forest Discovery Centre is located near the town of Hadashville, 2.5km south of the #1 and #11 junction.

On August 14-15, the Centre will be hosting Heritage Days which includes a tour of the historic Tree Planting Train Car that was used once as a travelling theatre helping to teach young and old about the importance of trees. Following the tour, visitors can enjoy fresh baked bannock.

On August 21-22 visitors can learn about the non-timber forest products including wild edibles, teas, art materials and more.
