EPISODE 2: Resiliency in Times of Change webinar series April 29 and May 6, 2020
In this two part webinar, campaigners Jens Wieting and Mark Worthing discuss the importance of ancient forests for healthy communities, a liveable climate and sustainable economies through the portal of this pandemic. They also give a quick update on actions we are hoping to see from the BC government in the context of changes to provincial forestry laws, old-growth panel recommendations and support for Indigenous-led land use planning.

Take Action for old-growth forests!
BC’s old-growth review panel is expected to share their recommendations on forest protection this week. Now’s a good time to chime in yourself and demand the BC government takes bold old-growth action based on science.
