Prince Edward Island has a small but vibrant Maple Syrup industry. Beginning in March, many Island producers welcome people to visit their sugar bush and see how this truly Canadian treat is made.
The Island's annual Angling Season runs from April 15, 2015 until early fall. For more information on angling licenses, special seasons and/or restrictions, fish identification and fishing regulations, consult the 2015 Angling Summary. The Summary is available on line or free of charge at angling license retailers across PEI.
Applications for the 2015 Wildlife Conservation Fund Spring season are now being accepted. Interested groups can access the application form at:
The Public Land Atlas has been updated to reflect a number of changes suggested by Islanders who use public lands for recreation, bird watching, hiking, hunting and fishing. The updated Atlas makes a great Christmas gift and is available for $34 at the J. Frank Gaudet Tree Nursery complex at 183 Upton Rd., Charlottetown.
The Forest Investment Program (FIP) enables qualified land owners to borrow up to $5,000 to help them cover off their share of forest management treatments. Low interest FIP Loans are repayable in small monthly payments over a maximum of five years. For more information, contact the Forests, Fish and Wildlife division or visit the FIP web site.
