 ARISAIG PICNIC & INTERPRETIVE PARK

2020: The Park is closed to vehicles – Reopens opens late  May

      Park at gate & walk in…

  The goal is still to rebuild an Acadian  Forest as it would have been before humans arrived in the area.

 Park Replanting  …  the long-term project

  • Continues in 2020 with more young trees being planted throughout the season.
  • White pines and yellow birches planted earlier in large numbers among the downed trees in the areas that have been felled in response to the devastation  of the spruce stand which has hit the park. These saplings should overtake the landscape as the cut trees go back to nature.
  • The wide swaths of felled trees are planned fire-breaks. Many of them are showing new signs of life while others have yet to flourish.

The eventual goal is to recreate an Acadian Forest environment, with only trees that grew naturally in Nova Scotia before mankind arrived.
