- About Us
– this is another year-round resident that is somewhat migratory. Some years there are very few while in others they are plentiful, though they never show up in large flocks like the American goldfinch and pine siskin. The males add a welcome touch of colour. One field guide describes the male in spring breeding plumage as having been “dipped in raspberry sauce”. Purple finches will feed at both Niger thistle and black oil sunflower seed feeders.
The Confederation Forests will provide habitat for all species, making a place to live, learn, and enjoy for the islanders who are here now, and those still yet to come.
Native Plant arboretum
Our Arboretum showcases more and more of our Island's native flora, providing rare seed sources, opportunities for teaching, habitat enhancement and a place to enjoy the splendour of the Acadian Forest.
