The teaser for our music video Beaver Pond Forest is up!
The song Beaver Pond Forest is about a forest located in the South March Highlands, north of Kanata, one of the great spots in the wilderness where my friends and I used to hang out when we were young teens. It recently won the People’s Choice Great Public Space award in the Great Places in Canada competition. It’s an old forest that is home to over 600 species, including over a dozen species at risk of going instinct, as well as interesting archaeological discoveries and sacred aboriginal sites. The area has now been slated for destruction by developers wanting to expand the suburbs, and a big chunk of the trees near Beaver Pond Forest has already been cut down. Various groups have been formed to try to stop this development.
Thanks to the lovely film maker Toni Van Eeden, who is currently working on the full version of the music video. Stay tuned for its release this fall!
