is going -- Into the Woods!
We're putting together an exciting year-long
program of hands-on learning, public events, guest speakers and outings, with a focus on the Acadian Forest ecosystem,
how to use it and not abuse it.
Managing the Mersey
What's the Plan?
What Can We Learn?
Forests are in the news!
The Province has bought over 400,000 hectares of land from Bowater/ Mersey in SW Nova Scotia.
On Thursday 18 April please join us for a special presentation -- an insider's look
at the process and the evolving land-use plan, a plan which includes Protected Areas and Community
Forests. Our special guest, Geoff
LeBoutillier has been involved in this process for a long time and will take
us through the public consultation currently underway, with an eye to gleaning information and insight that
could be applicable to the Eastern Shore.
After Geoff's presentation
stay to learn about developments at our own Otter Ponds Demonstration Forest, the Deanery
Project and our other forest partnerships. Join the discussion. Help us celebrate fifteen years of Forest Watch
at our annual event honouring Earth Day.
Geoff LeBoutillier is past president of the St. Margaret's Bay Stewardship Association.
He is also the driving force behind the 'Buy Back the Mersey' movement.
Shore Forest Watch Association Annual
will follow the presentations.
