THIS IS A RARE CHANCE
To Save For All Time a Vanishing Ecosystem
Help us repatriate 6 acres to Wildwood
The 6 acres were once part of Wildwood and despite several changes in ownership have remained intact. Merv did some selective harvesting in line with his ecoforestry principles and practices, but the property hasn’t been touched for decades.
Ownership by the Ecoforestry Institute Society ensures these giants and the ecosystems in which they thrive will remain fully protected – forever.

500 year old Coastal Douglas-fir
Licorice ferns, lichens and fungi
Massive maple trees
A flourishing canopy
Habitat for eagles, great blue herons, great horned owls, and pileated woodpeckers
These 6 acres are a stunning remnant of an old growth Coastal Douglas-fir ecosystem undisturbed by conventional logging practices. The magic of ancient trees remains, venerable giants that have stood in place for 500 years and more.
Experience towering maple trees, limbs draped in thick carpets of moss and licorice ferns. Explore a fully mature, connected and ever evolving understory, a canopy that contains insects and life systems that have never been studied before. This is ecoforestry — a safe haven for a wealth of flora and fauna.
