Donors & Volunteers

canadahelpslogosmallMacphail Woods is a unique project. If you have enjoyed our owl prowls or plant walks, if your children have been inspired by our summer programs or school plantings, or if you just want to help us steward the public forest land, please consider making a donation of money, your time, or one of these items.

The Macphail Woods Ecological Forestry Project is an initiative of the Environmental Coalition of Prince Edward Island that has been helping Islanders discover the importance of forests by setting an example of stewardship and sustainability for over 20 years. 

Your support has made a difference.
