The public hikes to Avatar Grove lead by the AFA have proven to be extremely popular trips. For many people, this is their first time getting a chance to visit and experience an old-growth forest firsthand.

The Ancient Forest Alliance would like to sincerely thank the Mountain Equipment Co-op for helping fund our BC slideshow tour as well as many of our public hikes to the Avatar Grove which will continue to run into the fall. This contribution has allowed us to inform and involve thousands of British Columbians around the state of our province's endangered old-growth forests and to also get them out and experience their magnificence first hand.
The AFA runs on a fraction of many larger NGO's budgets and is very thankful for the generosity of MEC and our public supporters.
The next time you're in need of any outdoor supplies be sure to drop by the local MEC located at 1450 Government Street in Victoria. You can also visit them online at http://www.mec.ca/Main/home.jsp
