The Port Renfrew Chamber of Commerce has partnered with the Ancient Forest Alliance to both raise awareness about the endangered 'Avatar Grove ' and call for it's protection.

The Ancient Forest Alliance is planning monthly public hikes to the Grove which features 50 hectares of old growth trees, located in an area just discovered by the Alliance a year ago.

Port Renfrew's Chamber of Commerce has requested the BC government protect the Avatar Grove, for it's eco-tourism potential, and the Sooke Regional Tourism Association has echoed that request.
