Chelsea Community Forest Project


Chelsea Community Forest Project

(Theme 4 – Habitat, Theme 8 – Health, Theme10 – Sense of Place)

Organization: Action Chelsea for Respect of the Environment (ACRE) and Chelsea Community Group

Timeline for Completion: Started 2020 Ongoing

Objective:

“We’ve Reached our Goal for the Land Purchase!”

We are very happy to let you know that we have met our fundraising goal to ensure the community purchase of the 57-acre Johannsen property.

We are grateful to all the neighbours across Chelsea who helped make this happen, in record time! We live in an amazing community.

For all the folks that pledged to donate, we’ll be in touch by Wednesday, the 27th, with more information.

We look forward to closing our deal by the end of February. This land will be protected in perpetuity, thanks to you all.

ACRE will act as a land trust, while community members will create a stewardship committee to manage and care for the land. The committee will ensure the preservation of the forest for continued, non-motorized, light recreational use and as a wildlife habitat.
