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.
