Mon, Feb. 23, 2015: Otter Pond Demonstration Forest

MattMatt Miller of the Ecology Action Centre will talk about Otter Ponds Demonstration Forest (OPDF), in Mooseland, on the Eastern Shore. It’s a community forest project where a 1500 acre parcel of Crown land is being managed cooperatively by 4 NGOs (EAC, Nova Scotia Woodlot Owners and Operators, Eastern Shore Forest Watch and Mooseland Community Association). The first of its kind in Nova Scotia! Their mission is to demonstrate the philosophy, science, and practice of uneven-aged management in the Acadian Forest. They produce timber for market using the best forest practices presently known, while protecting wildlife habitat and the Tangier River watershed, respecting the ecosystem services provided by the parcel, and enhancing the social and cultural value of the forest. Management practices are certified to the Forest Stewardship Council’s Maritime Standard. This presentation is being made to the NS Wild Flora Society with cooperation of HFN. All welcome! HFN/NSWFS plan a field trip to the site in the summer or fall. 7:30 p.m. at the Nova Scotia Museum of Natural History
