The annual Winter Woodlot Tour took place on Saturday March 5th 2022 on a private woodlot on the Millvale Road. After a few delays and postponements, we were so pleased that the weather cooperated and we were able to run the event! It was a huge success; we had over 600 visitors attend, we had 30 people volunteer to participate as presenters, we had an additional 16 volunteers helping out all over the place, we had free sleigh rides and hot apple cider, and we raised over $380 in donations that will go towards next year’s event. We would like to sincerely thank the participants and volunteers for their enthusiasm, cooperation with COVID-19 regulations, and for helping the event run really smoothly. We would also like to acknowledge the Wildlife Conservation Fund for proving funding to cover many of the event costs.

The Winter Woodlot Tour is a free, annual, educational, public event (9-1am) that promotes the outdoors and showcases the economic, environmental, and cultural significance of PEI forests and woodlots. WRIG organizes the event in collaboration with the Hunter-Clyde Watershed Group (HCWG), Central Queens Wildlife Federation (CQWF), and Trout River Environmental Committee (TREC) and its location rotates between the watershed areas. Each year, volunteer exhibitors provide the public with information, displays, and demonstrations on a wide range of woodlot related products, services, and topics. If you are interested in joining a future event as an exhibitor, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
