CHEK News: Avatar Grove Sees Visit From Provincial NDP Politician and Regional Representitives
NDP MLA John Horgan, CRD Director Mike Hicks, and Sooke Regional Tourism Association member Jon Cash join the AFA in the fight to protect the endangered Avatar Grove.
CHEK News, September 30, 2010
The following CHEK TV clip covers a trip with the Ancient Forest Alliance and MLA John Horgan and CRD Director Mike Hicks to the Avatar Grove and the San Juan Spruce (the largest spruce tree in Canada, second largest on Earth). Note that in the clip a giant cedar is mistakenly shown in the place of the San Juan Spruce and that the gnarly cedar is not Canada's largest cedar (which is the Cheewhat Cedar, a couple hours to the north), but rather the gnarliest or burliest tree in Canada. Also note that the area is not Grants Grove, which is located perhaps 10 kilometers to the north of the Avatar Grove.
