Guided Tour of Wildwood with Dr. Nancy Turner

May 20 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Bring family and friends for a walk among the old growth trees of Wildwood Ecoforest – the oldest continuously-managed ecoforest in North America.

Your guide, renowned ethnobotanist Dr. Nancy Turner, will highlight key features that demonstrate sustainable forestry practices, such as leaving large old seed trees for natural regeneration and dead standing trees for woodpecker and owl nests. Dr. Turner will also share ways in which local First Nations stewarded the forests and utilized plants for food and medicines.

Tour takes place rain or shine, so please dress accordingly.

Please park near the front gate and walk down to the the Visitors Centre at 1 pm.

Tour by donation (Suggested donation $10)
