 Pulp and Papers Pavilion

Forests affect Man and his Wolrd profoundly. Paper, for which the forests produce raw material, is the principal tool man uses to record his thoughts and his actions.

This is the theme of the Canadian Pupl and Paper Pavilion on ils Notre-Dame, a stylized forest, in whish the tallest trees are as high as an eight story building.

The first of four main exhibit areas shows forest legends of the world, combining sound effects abnd animation in a whimsical treatment.

Next is a visit to one of the pavilions' two unusual theaters. Its walls suggest an unwinding roll of paper, and visitors watch a show on paper's history.

The third area tells of the benifits Canadian Pupl and Paper bring to the Canadian economy and the word.

Nest a visit to Lab 67, a science whizz show presenting a lively demonstration relating to the chemical aspect of paper production and the unlimited future applications of paper products.

Visitors on the plaza can watch a demonstration by French Canadian artisans of papermaking by hand.
