Working with a group of new video makers, veteran Antigonish filmmaker Peter Murphy, with noted NS naturalist Bob Bancroft, and Guysborough Country, NS forester Danny George, opens up the issue of clearcutting NS forests to generate electricity. Forest biomass must be de-listed as a renewable resource.
The HFC is grateful to Peter Murphy for letting us post his video. Making movies can be expensive. Peter is planning more videos on NS forestry. Any help you could give to these efforts would be gratefully received via his website, http://www.seabrightproductions.ca/.
Sometimes we may forget what it's all about...
Precious as jewels, fleeting as snow-flakes, yet ancient as the forest itself, these are the wildflowers of the Acadian forest. The trillium, the spring beauty, the bloodroot and lady slipper, once as abundant as the songbirds - now driven to the far recesses of their range. A priceless inheritance many Maritimers may never see, truly, the Treasures of the Old Forest.
Take a look, "Treasures of the Old Forest"...
