Restoring Acadian Forest Species in PEI National Park
Confederation Centre Public Library. Feb. 15 at 7 p.m. Before European settlers came to PEI, the Island had beautiful lush forests - species of trees that together, are now known as Acadian Forest species. However, most of that original Acadian Forest was cleared for settlement, agriculture, or shipbuilding. Today there remains only small fragments of the original Acadian Forest in PEI. As a recognized leader in conservation, Parks Canada is taking steps to re-establish Acadian Forest species in Prince Edward Island National Park. This presentation discusses the challenges of this important initiative - and the benefits to wildlife and to the environment.
