Eric Edward has been working at Macphail Woods since 1998. He is involved in all aspects of the project and though he is particularly good at digging holes (in which to plant trees), his most important role has been as an educator. Under his leadership the summer nature camp programs have grown by leaps and bounds and now occupy much of his summer. Eric also developed and delivers our chainsaw training programs.
