Restore an Acre

In an effort to improve the health of our forests and create a model for environmental stewardship, Macphail Woods is launching the Restore an Acre initiative.

All donations will be used in the restoration of a 220-acre Public Forest on the Selkirk Road (Route #23) in Valley, part of the 2,000 acres we are managing for the provincial government.

Schoolground Naturalization

School plantings have been one of the most rewarding endeavours of the Macphail Woods Ecological Forestry Project. Schools are the heart of our community where our children gather to learn and grow. Over the years we have planted dozens of Island schools and experienced first hand the positive outcomes of helping children turn their school grounds into beautiful natural spaces.


Instructional Videos

Our website has tons of information about using native plants in your yard, woodlot, hedgerow, or riparian zone. Take a look at our Planting Guides to learn about species preferences, wildlife benefits, hedgerow creation and more!


Thank you to Millefiore Clarkes and One Thousand Flowers Productions for donating expertise and time in making the following videos.
