CWFS Volunteer Day Thank You

Central Westcoast Forest Society would like to say a huge thank-you to all the volunteers that came out to plant trees on Saturday, November 22! With your help we planted 170 cedar and spruce trees to help stabilize the river banks and improve riparian habitat. U p to date Central Westcoast Forest Society and Toquaht First Nation have restored approximately 400m of Twin Rivers East through installation of large woody debris, boulders and root wads.

These efforts aim to minimize erosion of river banks, create shade and pools for fish to hide, create riparian habitat, as well as improve spawning grounds. This work would not be possible without the generous support of Toquaht First Nation, Pacific Salmon Foundation, Clayoquot Biosphere Trust, Environment Canada Eco-Action, The Schein Foundation and local community members.
