Here’s where things are at in the woods

Hi Paov,

It’s been almost two years since the BC government promised to implement the recommendations from its Old-Growth Strategic Review and save old-growth forests. However, lasting protection of endangered forests and the promised paradigm shift to safeguard biodiversity remain elusive.

Despite some steps in the right direction, government and industry spin on everything from logging deferrals to the very definition of old-growth has created a hot mess of facts and fiction.

Join us to talk about how much old-growth actually remains in the province, what exactly has been done to keep it standing, and how to separate facts from government and corporate talking points.

Register here for the webinar! This webinar will feature our national campaign director Torrance Coste, along with Jens Wieting, of Sierra Club BC, moderated by Jackie Larkin from Elders for Ancient Trees.

We will run through the numbers on remaining old-growth and their characteristics, how much is protected or deferred, how much is being cut in the meantime, what type of support exists for Indigenous communities and groups seeking to protect forests, and more.

This webinar will include a Q&A where our panelists will answer your forest-related questions and make sure you have up-to-date and factual messaging that you can use to take action for old-growth forests you love! Don’t miss this webinar, sign up today! An informed, empowered public that knows the difference between fact and fiction on old-growth is the most powerful force to keep the province accountable. Join this conversation and help keep the pressure on the BC NDP!
