Upper Walbran Valley
The Upper Walbran Valley was left out of the parks deal when the BC government protected the Carmanah Valley and Lower Walbran in the 1990's. Since then, the rich upper valley has been turned into a virtual Swiss cheese by logging, fragmenting the spectacular old-growth forest. Stumps up to 15ft in diameter have been found in the sprawling clearcuts. The Upper Walbran has been a focal point for many environmental battles for the past 15 years and time is running out to save what is left in this incredible valley.
