Avatar Grove & Big Lonely Doug Boardwalk Donation
If your preferred method of payment is Paypal, please use the button below. For a GIFT donation through Paypal, please indicate your name, the recipients name, their address and your sentiments to be included in the card in the PayPal message box or follow up afterwards with an email to email@example.com.
We are asking for your generous support to protect the Avatar Grove's ecological integrity and increase visitor safety by supporting the Ancient Forest Alliance's goal to complete the official boardwalk and trail - and ultimately foster greater public awareness on the need to safeguard our ancient forests!
We also have plans to create a Big Lonely Doug Trail and Viewing Platform. Big Lonely Doug, discovered to be Canada's 2nd largest Douglas-fir by AFA campaigners in 2014, stands alone in a recent clearcut at the base of the Edinburgh Mountain Ancient Forest, much of which is threatened with further logging. Many people are making the pilgrimage to see this mammoth tree, and a trail and a tree-viewing platform at the base is needed to minimize visitor impacts on its roots and erosion in general on the slope down to the tree.
For $100 you can FUND a 1 METRE section of boardwalk in the Avatar Grove or the platfrom at Big Lonely Doug. As a special thank you, the AFA has prepared a certificate that will be issued in your name or with the name of your friend or loved one if you're giving the donation as a gift for them.
ANY amount you can donate will add up and will help safeguard these area's ecological integrity.
If you give a Boardwalk Donation as a Gift to a friend or loved one, we will send a card featuring one of TJ Watt's spectacular old growth forest images with your sentiments to the recipient on it, information on our ancient forest campaigns, and if you donate $100 or more, an additional certificate with the recipientís name with a beautiful photo of the Avatar Grove.
