Macphail Woods is a unique project.

Be part of something big!
Help improve the health of our forests and create a model for environmental stewardship by donating $200 to sponsor the restoration one acre of public forest land. Show your personal support for our forests, or make it a gift on behalf of friends or family members.
If you have an interest in improving the ecological health of our Island communities – everything from forest restoration and environmental education to climate change and protection of wildlife habitat – then please make us part of your charitable giving.
Our children’s program is overflowing and requires better equipment, everything from bird books to microscopes. Tools to help the native plant nursery which collects and propagates some of the rarest plants in the province. Stewarding 2000 acres of public land requires all kinds of gadgets from pruning gear to computers!
If you are interested in volunteering at Macphail Woods – whether in our nursery, with our children’s camps, collecting seed, taking photographs, fundraising, helping with the web site, or anything else please contact Gary Schneider
