📢 ALERT!! ALERT!! ⚠️🌳⚠️💧⚠️🌲⚠️
We have recently been made aware of planned logging activities above Cathedral Grove/MacMillan Provincial Park. Road building and blasting have already begun for these activities which, if conducted as planned, will negatively impact the entire Cathedral Grove watershed and ecosystem.
No buffer is planned for logging activities around the affected streams. There is strong concern that logging in the steep, erosion prone area containing small feeder streams that lead to the Cameron River - and thus Cameron Lake and Little Qualicum River - would negatively impact both the quality and quantity of water flowing from this watershed.
The affected watershed is crucial for the provision of water and livelihoods to First Nations and other communities below. It provides water and vital habitat for both red and blue listed species. Further, it is integral for the Cathedral Grove ecosystem and the undisturbed subsistence of the iconic MacMillan Provincial Park - whose watershed and wildlife corridor links Clayoquot Sound and Mount Arrowsmith, two UNESCO designated Biosphere Reserves.
