rsz_1unnamedHelp Protect 'The Twist and Shout Forest'
A key section of the the Mt. Elphinstone Provincial Park expansion zone is under threat to clearcut logging.  BC Timber Sales Blk A87125 threatens to log an intact, multi-story forest between two existing former cutblocks, thus adding to fragmentation across this fragile landscape. The forest type is recorded as Blue-Listed on the Provincial Endangered Species (Flora) List, and yet does not obtain any special considerations for protection.  Take a walk along the ELF trail that meanders through this older forest, and you'll feel like you're in Stanley Park as you walk under the towering Douglas-Fir trees. Please, 'Take Action' today by contacting the BCTS decision-makers found on the campaign page. This forest is on traditional Skwxwu7mesh (Squamish) lands. (Photo Credit -  Thanks to Shel Neufeld)
