2017-10-26_22-03-15Save 'the Chanterelle Forest' (LOST January 2018)
‘The Chanterelle Forest’, in the already heavily logged Wilson Creek Watershed, is threatened with clear-cut logging by Sunshine Coast Community Forest (SCCF), Block EW028. SCCF is a logging company owned and operated by the Town of Sechelt. This low-elevation forest is currently surrounded by Falling Boundary Tape setting the stage for its destruction. Logging would wipe out another easily accessible mushroom harvesting site on the Sunshine Coast.  This natural forest system features Old-Growth Douglas-fir ‘vets’, elk and bear trails, wildlife trees, and ideal growing conditions for a variety of fungi and lichen, including Chanterelles, Pines and Coastal Reindeer lichen.  This forest supports mushroom pickers with a seasonal cash crop.  It lies within the traditional territory of the shishalh Nation, and portions of it within the proposed Mt. Elphinstone Prov. Park expansion area. 'Take Action' Today - Click Here
