Stillwater Bluffs
This 48 hectare dry maritime forest by Powell River contains an exceptionally scenic, dramatic stretch of coastline. It is accessible to the public and offers hiking trails, rock climbing, and unspoiled wildlife habitat that is perfect for a nature park. It is heavily used by local people and could be the local residents’ version of West Vancouver’s famous Lighthouse Park. The parcel, on Island Timberlands corporate private lands, is known as DL 3040, and includes sensitive ecosystems of arbutus/rocky outcrops, second-growth Douglas fir and cedar of high community recreation and scenic value, an eagle nesting tree, and scattered, huge old-growth “veteran” Douglas fir and redcedar trees. Local citizens are pushing the Powell River Regional District and the provincial government to assist in funding the area's purchase, while Island Timberlands in 2012 continues to move forward towards logging this precious area in the near future. • Photography by TJ Watt.
