February 2017 Wildwood Update

Dear Friends, we may have been quiet on our Facebook page lately, but we can assure you that the Ecoforestry Institute Board and Special Advisors have been very busy behind the scenes. We're working to make sure that the community is welcomed back to Wildwood again. Mark your calendars now and join us for the public tours every third Sunday of the month at 1 pm. And watch for the Spring Open House soon to be announced.

We've also developed a Task Force to examine every possible source of revenue to make sure we can pay off our debts and build the infrastructure and educational programming that will best serve the community and promote ecoforestry principles and practices. We're looking at some very exciting projects like the GoGrants that will bring school children in for some hands on experience in the forest, the construction of a superb and beautiful timber frame and glass educational centre, a display area to showcase the work of local artists, and a new milling and carving shed where we will mill our timber harvest and craft value-added products.

We have welcomed our First Nations people back to the forest, hosted a fundraiser for the Walbran Central folks and developed some new and exciting partnerships. There are so many creative and talented people willing to share their expertise, time and pure sweat equity with us. If you would like to become part of the Wildwood community and spirit, just let us know. There is room for everyone here at Wildwood.
