Wilson Creek Forestpart of the Roberts Creek Area Gallery
This beautiful, mature and old-growth forest near Roberts Creek on the Lower Sunshine Coast is proposed by local residents in the area for protection in an expanded Mount Elphinstone Provincial Park. A wildfire raged through the area over 100 years ago, but scores of veteran ancient Douglas firs survived, some of huge dimensions and often standing together in extensive groves. This unprotected area on Crown lands is one of the only low elevation ancient forest remaining on the Sunshine Coast and is home to cougars, bears, deer, and the threatened red-legged frog. It is an endangered coastal "dry maritime" forest, the vast majority of which have been logged and much of which has also been lost to urbanization and agriculture. The area is threatened to be logged by the local Community Forest, which unfortunately at this time lacks a strong conservation vision which should include protection of the highest conservation-value lands like the Wilson Creek Forest.
