Join the Ancient Forest Alliance and guests for presentations on some of the key forest controversies underway for 2014, including:

• The battle with Island Timberlands over their logging near Cathedral Grove, McLaughlin Ridge and other ancient forests on Vancouver Island, and the need for a combined regulatory solution and a park acquisition fund to purchase and protect endangered ecosystems on private lands.

• The BC Liberal government’s resurrection of the unpopular “Forest Give-away Scheme” to allow the largest logging companies in BC’s interior to have exclusive logging rights over vast areas of public forest lands, at the expense of forest protection initiatives, First Nations land rights, recreation, scenery, and tourism, and other interests.

• The BC government’s plans to open up Forest Reserves in BC’s Cariboo-Chilcotin region for logging to make up for a history of overcutting and the pine beetle outbreak.

• The Ancient Forest Alliance’s escalating campaign in 2014 to ensure provincial legislation to protect BC’s endangered old-growth forests.
