Otter Ponds Demonstration Forest highlights the philosophy, science, and practice of uneven-aged management in the Acadian Forest. It produces timber for market using the best forest practices presently known, while protecting wildlife habitat and the Tangier River watershed, respecting the ecosystem services provided by the parcel, and enhancing the social and cultural value of the forest. Management practices are certified to the Forest Stewardship Council’s Maritime Standard.
Woodlot owners, elementary and high school groups, university students and researchers, and other groups are invited to visit Otter Ponds to see an outstanding example of working forestland.
