March at Macphail woods

March 21, 2024

Our chainsaw crew has been working hard on our public land felling and cutting trees blown down by Hurricane Fiona. We are also welcoming a new hire, Jennifer Woods, as part of our chainsaw crew. 

We are getting ready for our nursery to open to the public on April 30th, and pre-orders have been coming in steadily for native plants. The sunny weather has been such a welcome as we prepare the greenhouse and nursery for a busy planting season

For upcoming events, at Macphail Woods, we have our well-loved Owl prowls! The events take place on April 13th and 20th (both are Saturdays). You do not need to register for these events, they are free and open to the public!

Macphail Woods founder, Gary Scheider recently did an in-depth interview as part of the CBC radio podcast series, 'Good Question PEI',  on the topic of forest recovery post Fiona.  To listen visit
