A YOUTH’S GUIDE TO THE THE ACADIAN FOREST – Written for kids, this important free publication is vital for those of all ages! As clearcutting and spraying changes our forest ecosystem, it is important to understand what we are loosing. Kelley’s free publication provides all the answers!
Like many of us who live within the Maritime provinces, I have a strong connection to the forest. Some of my earliest (and fondest) memories are of walking through the Bonshaw Trail behind our house, playing in treehouses and snow forts, and camping. I imagine it is not a coincidence that these memories all have a running woodland theme. This connection I have to the Acadian Forest has led me to develop a very real passion for how we see, treat, and utilize this amazing and beautiful component of the earth.”
Although there is very little of the ancient, old-growth forest I read about in books or see in pictures of ‘days gone by’, I am happy to have the opportunity to make a difference in my own community, the communities in which I work, Prince Edward Island and beyond. We are all capable of making a change, by planting a tiny seedling, volunteering with a local environmental organization, or protecting a section of private woodland/forest stand. Thank you for taking the time to read this guide, and I hope it inspires you to see your local forest in a new light.
