Cantilever blockade, August 1991. With the donated van with a log over a cliff with a platform and a protester hanging from the end. The story goes that when the loggers first saw this, they went back to their vehicles and came back holding three cards with 10-10-10 written on them, similar to how judges score in gymnastics events. Thanks to Brent for the photo.

A tiny bright green frog
ringed by a collar of
golden light, sits peacefully
on the forest floor, ferns
move slightly in the soft
current of air, succulent
plumes shimmer, silver
droplets sprinkle down.
The frog lands on the ferns
delicate surface, stem bends
acting as a tense spring-board
for the frogs next mighty

August 1991, lots of police with hefty video cameras, it would be great to get some of the footage. We made a 'Freedom of Information Request' about a year ago for all the RCMP evidence for the three summers in the valley, havent heard anything back yet. thanks to Brett for the picture

Looking up into the canopy of a Sitka spruce, the upper branches covered in a fringe of Licorice Ferns, lichens and mosses. Perfect nesting spots for the endangered Marbled Murrelet, only found in old growth coastal rainforest. Thanks to Rob for the photo

Large Sitka spruce in the Walbran Valley. The Carmanah, the next valley north has the tallest tree in Canada, a spruce measuring over 311 feet (95 meters) high. There are lots over 250 feet in the Walbran. Thanks to rob for the photo

Looking up the Walbran Creek from the bridge, towards where the west Walbran creek joins. Thanks to Rob for the photo

'Stop Clear cuts' carved into the bridge across the Walbran creek, looking a bit weathered after almost twenty years of some of the wettest weather in the world. The coastal rain forest gets over 12 feet of rainfall annually. Thanks to Rob for the photo
