“Over the years, this grand 60-hectare Coastal Douglas-fir forest has been referred to as the Qualicum Beach Salmon Forest, as the forest protects the water in the river for the annual migration of all 7 species of salmon as well as the important role of providing the drinking water for the Town of Qualicum Beach and the community of Dashwood, explains Annette Tanner, organizer of the tour.
“We are especially happy this year to have invited documentary film maker, Richard Boyce, www.vancouverislandstories.ca as our guest Earth Day tour guide,” continues Tanner.
