COMMUNITY FORESTRY IN NOVA SCOTIA

Presented by Matt Miller of the Ecology Action Centre

Shubenacadie Provincial Wildlife Park

Free Educational Presentation

Saturday January 17, 2015 (storm date is Jan 18 at the same time)

1 pm-2:30 pm

In December, 2012, DNR announced a process to establish a community forest pilot project in southwestern Nova Scotia. While the concept is relatively new to the Maritime Provinces, there are approximately 125 community forests in Canada, mostly in Quebec, Ontario and BC. While no two community forests are alike, they are broadly described as a public forest being managed by a local community, for the benefit of the community. Local benefits and a high degree of ecological sustainability are two common characteristics of community forests worldwide. Matt Miller, Forestry Coordinator at the Ecology Action Centre, will introduce the concept of community forestry and the opportunity it presents for Nova Scotia.

Please phone 902-758-7094 after 10:00 am on the day of the presentation to confirm it is not cancelled due to inclement weather. Or check our website https://wildlifepark.novascotia.ca/

CANADA'S COOLEST OCEAN CREATURE

Presented by Sean Brillant of the Canadian Wildlife Federation

FREE PRESENTATION

March 21, 2015 Saturday

 1:00-2:30 AT THE WETLAND CENTRE IN THE WILDLIFE PARK

Canada is 9 million square km of land – but also 6 million square km of ocean. There are thousands of wildlife species in our oceans. Some you probably know, but you may not realize how cool they are. Others you’ve probably never even have heard of or didn’t know they were a part of Canada. Do we need to protect all of these species? Do we even affect them? What role do we all have to make sure we protect our oceans? And, which is Canada’s coolest ocean creature? Join us and find out!

Please phone 902-758-7094 after 10:00 am on the day of the presentation to confirm it is not cancelled due to inclement weather. For general inquiries call 902-758-5316 or email: legacycentre@novascotia.ca

SPRING! Brought to you by Biodiversity!

Presented by Dr J Sherman Boates of Nova Scotia Department of Natural Resources

A FREE PRESENTATION AT THE WETLAND CENTRE LOCATED IN THE PARK

18 April 2015, Saturday1:00-2:30

The beauty and revitalizing energy of spring surrounds us; the breath-taking perfume of mayflowers, the skin-tingling voice of the song sparrow and spring peeper, and the vibrant colours of bursting buds and wildflower blossoms. In this presentation, I will use signs of spring to illustrate what biodiversity is, explore what diversity is, and explain many of the hidden and critical ways that biodiversity benefits us all.
