New stairs at the entrance to the Upper Grove. This will vastly improve ease of access and prevent erosion on the slope.

Here are some photos from the final volunteer boardwalk construction weekend at the Avatar Grove near Port Renfrew! The group of dedicated volunteers got together and worked two 10 hour days to complete most of the final major projects at the grove. These included two new staircases near the entrance of the Upper Grove which connect to a new walkway and vastly improve ease of access; a new set of stairs and walkway up a steep root section in the Upper Grove; railings around the deck a stairs leading down to the creek; adding rock and gravel to some muddy areas; and more! The feedback we’ve been receiving from folks on the trail has been excellent. Thank you so much to the volunteers and donors who've contributed over the past three years - we couldn’t have done it without you!! A big thanks as well goes to MEC and Sitka for contributing funding and to the Pacheedaht First Nation who donated a large portion of the wood. There will still be periodic upgrades to various spots on the trail but the major work is essentially done. Stay tuned for more!
