Ecoforestry Institute Society

The Ecoforestry Institute Society was founded in 1995 and has officially managed Wildwood Ecoforest as a working sustainable ecoforest since 2000. EIS embraces the ecoforestry philosophy and practices of Merv Wilkinson, who saw that the forest could be logged in a sustainable manner, while maintaining the values of a healthy and resilient forest.

We Won! Wildwood Is Saved!

Our collective efforts have paid off and Wildwood will remain forever in the public domain. On November 22, 2016, the BC Supreme Court approved the sale of Wildwood Ecoforest to the Ecoforestry Institute Society. Together, we stood united and together we will share Merv’s legacy for generations to come.

On behalf of the Ecoforestry Institute Society and the Wildwood Ecoforest, we would like to take this opportunity to thank each and everyone who has been involved in this epic venture. It has been a very long labour of love, sweat and tears but in the end it was more than worth it. Again thank you all for your support, aid and encouragement! The future indeed looks bright and the Wildwood Ecoforest can now be enjoyed for years to come.

Thank you to all for your donations, voice, support and talents.
EIS is both humbled and proud to be the new owners of Wildwood.
