Thank you! Great success!After a couple years of unfortunate weather and cancellations, we are thrilled to have had a successful 2020 Winter Woodlot Tour! We could not have asked for a more beautiful day for the event, which brought in approximately 800 visitors and over $300 in donations. We would like to thank you all for your generous contributions; these funds will help us continue to host these events in the future.
This year’s Winter Woodlot Tour would not have been possible without the help of our wonderful and dedicated volunteers, consisting of community members, students, directors from each of our three watershed groups, and previous watershed staff members. We had a great team! 🙌
We would like to extend a big thank you to the PEI Wildlife Conservation Fund for providing much of the funding for the event. These funds are generated by Islanders who purchase conservation license plates, as well as hunters, trappers, and anglers through their license conservation fees.
Thank you to all the presenters who provided their time and knowledge to make the event fun and educational for all! We would also like to thank to the PEI Department of Communities, Land, and Environment for their staff time, publicity, and for providing presenters and displays for the event.
Last, but certainly not least, we would like to thank Bluefield High School, The Public Schools Branch, and Mr. D’Arcy Flynn for providing us with a perfect location and assisting with the planning process. It is much appreciated!
Thanks for coming out and we hope to see you next time! 😃 ... See MoreSee Less

A beautiful winter photo of Jack's Bridge on Rassicot Farm. We were able to repair this damaged crossing in 2018 with grants from the Coastal Restoration Fund and the Wildlife Conservation Fund to improve fish passage in Ross Creek.
Thanks to local WRIG member Peter McDougall for this photo! ... See MoreSee Less
