The latest initiative of Ancient Forest Exploration & Research
In March 2019, Ancient Forest Exploration & Research (AFER) launched the Peterborough County Old-Growth Forest Project, funded by the Ontario Trillium Foundation. With assistance from our partners, citizen scientists and property owners, we are committed to locating, mapping, and describing ancient forests and other old-growth stands across the County. Critical to this effort will be the recruitment, training, and collaborative efforts of volunteer citizen scientists. This new approach to the conservation of old-growth forests will eventually be refined and expanded from Peterborough County to the remainder of Ontario's Temperate Forest Region.
