Landowners Testimonials

Monika Strak (2017):

"My parents purchased land near Bracebridge in the early 1960s, half of which had been farmed as far back as the 1880s. Since then, much of this land has been transformed for a variety of reasons: plantation plantings of red pine, scots pine, and cherry; wetlands formed by industrious beavers; and unfortunate hardwood harvesting by a logger (we didn’t know any better at the time).
Based on this, I am looking forward to acting as a Partner in Research with Forests in Settled & Urbanized Landscapes, not only to learn more about how these transformations continue to evolve naturally, but also how we can improve the land’s biodiversity as much as possible. I hope that the knowledge gained from the research and projects conducted on site will contribute to the success of future forests throughout Ontario."
