By donation. *All participants will be required to sign a waiver to join the hike

Join AFA's co-founder Ken Wu and Sierra Club of BC's forest and climate campaigner Jens Wieting for a rainforest walk in Vancouver's Stanley Park. See some of the largest old-growth trees in BC and learn about the plants and ecology there, as well as about the state of BC's globally endangered coastal temperate rainforest. Jens Wieting will explain the progress in protecting the Great Bear Rainforest and Clayoquot Sound, and the lack of forest stewardship in most of the province. Hear about what we must do to ensure that our forests provide long-term benefits instead of short-term profit and what climate change means for the future of our forests. In particular, learn how our forests have shifted from storing carbon to being a net emitter of carbon into the atmosphere, and find out what we must do to reverse that trend, making our forests a central mechanism in fighting climate change and building a climate-friendly, low carbon future.
