Protected Community Forest

50 acres of Acadian Forest was scheduled for harvest and the road in   was already started. The land owner agreed to sell and we decided to fund raise to collectively purchase this land, to ensure the trees remain and the wildlife habitat
and biodiverse ecosystem remain intact.
My neighbour, Kris Humphrey, and I are working together  with like minded friends and community to stop the harvest and preserve the forest.
We started with a Facebook fund raiser and in just over a month raised over $52,000 of the 80,000 needed. The land owner generously gave us an extension for another month to raise the remaining funds.
Much of the North Mountain has been clearcut and this 50 acres is in the middle of about 500+ acres already owned by people concerned about protecting the forest, creating a space for migratory birds, wildlife habitat, a maturing forest and like minded Nova Scotians to enjoy.
Climate Crisis is looming over us and this is a way for people to contribute in a personal way,  towards mitigating the effect.
Please contact myself, or Kris Humphreys if you have any questions.
