Macphail Woods Ecological Forestry Project

The Macphail Woods Ecological Forestry Project is an initiative of the Environmental Coalition of Prince Edward Island. It combines protection of the natural area along the streams with wildlife enhancement, forest stewardship, watershed protection, environmental education and ecological research.

The project began in September of 1991 with a wildlife garden and native plant nursery.We offer regular workshops on a wide variety of natural history, silvicultural and related topics – birds, wildflowers, owls, pruning, transplanting, bushcraft – as well as tours of the property and our work. The native plant nursery and arboretum attract special attention, showcasing native trees, shrubs, ferns and wildflowers.
