Thanks to Jason Miller for passing on some photos he took of the forest during the reunion, they show how we had such great weather. first picture he titled 'Summer light in the Rainforest'. Click on the image to enlarge.
Second photo is of the slow growing Pacific Yew.
Third picture is of one of many giant Red Cedars outside the park boundry in the still unprotected area called 'Castle Grove'.
Fourth picture is taken at the waterfalls just above where the West Walbran meets the Walbran Creek. titled 'Falls spherical cavity'.
Fifth picture of a notice of new species research in the canopy of the rainforest.
Sixth picture is of 'fellar buncher' on the road out of the valley, clear-cut logging continues right up to the park boundry.
I would like to acknowledge that the Walbran Valley is unceded First Nations territory.
The summer of 2011 made it 20 years since the beginning of the direct action blockades to stop clear-cut logging in the valley. This blog helped organise the 20 year reunion, which was a great success and now I hope the blog will remain and grow as an archive of the on going struggle for its protection. And for it to also inspire you to go out and connect with nature. So please share your stories, photos, newspaper cuttings, poems, recollections, drawings, essays and any ideas for future reunions. you can post them as comments and i can put them on the blog or you can email me. email@example.com This blog archive is an open resource for anyone to use but please acknowledge your sources, thanks.
