3rd Annual Festival of Forests

Macphail Woods Nature Centre

Sunday, August 26, 2018, 02:00pm - 06:00pm

Everyone is invited to join the staff and friends of Macphail Woods in a celebration of forests on August 26 from 2 to 6 pm. This 3rd Annual Festival of Forests is a family-friendly event, with children’s activities including games, wagon rides and face-painting. Micro-workshops will give participants a chance to learn about and identify plants native to PEI and hone their outdoor survival skills. Guided walks will be an opportunity to explore the Acadian Forest. There will be a silent auction, and food available for purchase. Or bring your own picnic.

Macphail Woods, a project of the Environmental Coalition of PEI, started over 25 years ago with a wildlife garden and native plant nursery, nature trails and forest restoration demonstration plots. The nursery showcases native trees, shrubs, ferns and wildflowers, attracting people from all over the Island. Macphail Woods holds workshops, summer camps and more.

Tickets will be sold onsite at the Macphail Wood Nature Centre, 269 Macphail Park Rd, Orwell.
