Imagine a diverse forest with tall, thriving trees. Sunlight streams through the leaves above and rich soils cover the ground below.
Across the Maritime Provinces, the unceded territory of the Peskotomuhkati, Mi’kmaq and Wolastoqey nations, there is a special forest type known as the Wabanaki forest.

Together, we can re-imagine a future in which the forest and the communities most connected to it can flourish again.
