Nature NB deplores new forest management strategy!
Yesterday, government announced a new forest management strategy that will see over 20% more softwood being removed from our crown lands, and a decrease in forest set aside for conservation from 28 to 23%, a level well below what scientists have indicated as sustainable for maintaining our wild species and spaces. Please read our open letter to Premier Alward and Minister Robichaud.
Nature NB’s 2014 Festival of Nature
Fog Forest and Fundy Tides – June 6th to June 8th
The Bay of Fundy is a spectacular area, rich in history, and a great place to explore for those interested in natural history. We are inviting you to come and appreciate some of our favorite places. The Festival will take place in and around Fundy National Park and we are very pleased that Parks Canada is hosting with us for the weekend from June 6 to June 8. The brochure, registration form, and a link to our on-line registration are found here.
Mary Majka, one of Nature NB’s founders, will be deeply missed by naturalists across the province. A true force of nature, she inspired others with her enthusiasm, dedication, and persistence to protect natural areas, wild species and heritage sites in the province. A mentor to many of us, she has shown her love for nature throughout her life, always ready to engage others, and move projects and ideas forward. Our condolences to family and friends.
