- About Us
Over the last 25 years, Macphail Woods has offered a huge variety of free workshops on topics from owls to botany to forest restoration and more. We soon found our workshops growing in popularity with many participants requesting longer more in-depth hands-on courses http://uqueenhair.com/?mapca1.
To fulfill those requests, we launched our School of Woodland Ecology in 2016, offering in-depth courses for adults on a variety of topics from native botany to woodlot management to ecological bushcraft camping! http://trfchurch.org/?mapca1
The School of Woodland Ecology allows participants to delve deeper into specific topics, developing knowledge, skills and confidence. source
http://vizualize.me/dumakake# Our teaching method is based on direct experience, observation, and getting hands-on. Students are taught to recognize keystone patterns whether in a flower or a forest. This time-tested approach works for students of every age and level of understanding and is the basis for sound ecological action.

What to Bring
Participants should bring their own lunch and snacks and clothes suited to the weather as courses are primarily outdoors. We do have bathrooms on-site, a small kitchenette for coffee/tea, and a microwave. Although we provide various equipment for each course, bringing your own tools is always welcome and encouraged.
Location We use our very own Nature Centre, located on the Sir Andrew Macphail Homestead property, as a home base for all of our outdoor activities. Located just 20 minutes east of Charlottetown, the Macphail Woods Nature Centre has a variety of teaching spaces and is surrounded by 140 acres of forest and field. Winding through the property are four trails, a stream and one of the province’s finest remaining examples of our native Acadian forest.
