A group who's mission is to save the island's old growth forests is giving CRD Parks a pat on the back, this for hosting a number of public input meetinsg over the past two weeks.
Co-founder of the Ancient Forest Alliance Ken Wu says Vancouver Island has the finest and largest old growht forests and largest tress in the country, and this gave the public a chance to help protect them:
"the CRD right now is soliciting public input to determine candidate protected areas, and the overall strategic direction of regional parks and trails. Because we are focused on protecting old growth forests, this is a first rate opportunity to save old growth forests in the CRD."
Wu says this move by the CRD follows another they applaud, the committment to help fund the purchase of the Western Forest Products lands.
