The Ancient Forest Alliance would like to extend a great thank you and congratulations to Francis Litman and all the organizers and volunteers that made Creatively United for the Planet such a success this past Earth Day weekend. The family-friendly event drew out thousands of folks who were able to visit the more than 70 vendor booths and learn more about sustainability and creative ways to help the planet. It's through building a broad-based, large-scale movement that we will bring about real powerful social and environmental change. Creatively United was a great example of this! Here's to 2014!

The following is a summary on the positions of BC’s main political parties on old-growth related forest policies and some additional forest policies. The Ancient Forest Alliance is calling on BC’s political parties to commit to a science-based “Old-Growth Protection Act” with targets and timelines to end old-growth logging in endangered regions and to ensure a sustainable, value-added second-growth forest industry instead.
