Time: 7:00-8:30pm
Location: Goldstream Provincial Park - Meet at the first parking lot
Difficulty: Easy walk
Dogs must stay on leash
**By donation**
All participants will be required to sign a waiver to join the hike.

Join AFA’s co-founder Ken Wu and Sierra Club of BC’s forest and climate campaigner Jens Wieting for a rainforest walk in Victoria's Goldstream Provincial Park. See some of the largest old-growth trees in BC, learn about the plants and ecology there, and about state of BC’s globally endangered coastal temperate rainforest. Wieting will also explain the progress in protecting the Great Bear Rainforest and Clayoquot Sound, and the lack of forest stewardship in most of the province. Hear about what we must do to ensure that our forests provide long-term benefits instead of short-term profit and what climate change means for the future of our forests. In particular, learn how our forests have shifted from storing carbon to being a net emitter into the atmosphere and what we must do to reverse that trend, making our forests a central mechanism in fighting climate change and building a climate-friendly, low carbon future.
