policy director, Ecology Action Centre
The Ecology Action Centre is, of course, the grandaddy of local environmental groups, the single resource that all other groups rely on. So it was naturally the place for us to go to ask about lesser-known groups that have escaped our attention. “Eastern Shore Forest Watch,” says Butler without hesitation. “They’re about protecting the Eastern Shore, protecting the forest. They played a big role in getting the Ship Harbour-Long Lake Wilderness Area protected. The activists work with the local wood-lot owners to establish a model wood lot, a site in Mooseland for demonstrating better forestry practices.”
How to give: Eastern Shore Forest Watch is always in need of volunteers and money. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
