Nova Scotia’s Forests to Be Celebrated


NOTE: Driving directions to the field days follow this release.

September 24th to the 30th is National Forest Week and two award-winning, family-operated, Nova Scotia woodlots are holding public field days in September to help celebrate.

“Our forests provide habitats for our diverse wildlife populations as well as recreational opportunities and economic benefits,” said Natural Resources Minister Margaret Miller. “Everyone is invited to celebrate our forests by sharing in the family fun of these woodlot field days.”

Each of the field days will be hosted by a different 2017 Woodland Owner of the Year winner. They will run from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. with award presentations beginning at about 12:30 p.m.

Other details are:
— Sept. 23, western region winner, David Bent, will host a field day on his property in Annapolis County
— Sept. 30, the provincial and central region award recipients, Peter and Pat Spicer of Spencers Island, will welcome visitors to their woodland in Cumberland County.

Mr. Bent and the Spicers were recognized earlier this year as outstanding woodland stewards who encourage sustainable woodland management and increase public awareness of the importance of private woodlands.
