Burned Documentary Screenings
We're proud to present screenings of Burned at locations across Nova Scotia this fall. Burned examines the rise of biomass in the Eastern United States. These are the same issues Nova Scotia is facing today. Following each film, we'll have a Q&A to discuss what is happening with our forests. Check back soon for more dates and locations:

Public Land Conservation
Public Land is also referred to as Crown Land, and as the name 'Public' suggests, it is land owned by the citizens of Nova Scotia and held in trust by the government. It belongs to all of us equally. It belongs to every man, woman and child in the province. Together we own almost 15,000 square kilometres of land in Nova Scotia, which translates into a little more than three and a half acres of land per person.
Ecologically Responsible Forestry
A revitalized Acadian forest supports Nova Scotian jobs, tourism, and a healthy environment. Its streams run clear, cold and clean. Its unique mix of trees of different sizes, ages and species resists disease, budworms and hurricanes, and provides a rich, diverse habitat for flying squirrels, moose, owls, orchids.
Recent research suggests that 44% of Canadian bird species are declining, including one-third of the species found in the Maritimes. Habitat loss, pollution, and climate change, as well as human-related causes of individual mortality, all negatively affect our bird populations.
The Ecology Action Centre’s Bird Conservation Committee engages in research, education & policy change to reverse these declines of migratory and non-migratory bird species in Atlantic Canada. We work to educate the public about preventable causes of bird death. Learn more.
