Collective Arts X Ontario Parks

Restore a Forest

The Emerald Ash Borer has ravaged many campgrounds and trails across Ontario by targeting Ash trees, including those in Balsam Lake Provincial Park.

These invasive, wood-boring beetles have led to a decline in Ash trees, reducing the tree canopy and creating room for other non-native plant species to take over. 

 

Proceeds from Every Purchase Plants Trees

 

Ontario Parks partnered with Collective Arts Brewing to support the Balsam Lake Provincial Park Forest Restoration Project. 

Thanks to your generous contributions, the Field Guide beer, a limited-edition IPA brewed with locally sourced spruce tips and sumac, paired with locally grown barley from Barn Owl Malt, sold out. 

Your purchases will fund the removal of invasive plant species and replace them with native trees, like white birch, white cedar, and white spruce, returning the forest to a healthy ecosystem for long-lasting enjoyment. 

 

Your beer purchases have resulted in $5,800 towards forest restoration!

 

We would still love your help in funding this project. If you're keen to support reforestation at Balsam Lake, please consider donating directly!
