AFA's Ken Wu Awarded for Old-Growth Activism!
Ancient Forest Alliance, April 29, 2016
On April 28th the Vancouver Natural History Society (Nature Vancouver) awarded the Ancient Forest Alliance's executive director Ken Wu for his years of old-growth forest activism. Past recipients of the Frank Sanford Award for Community Service include the late mountaineer and conservationist John Clarke, journalist Larry Pynn, and outdoor writer Jack Christie. Amazingly, the organization is 98 years old, dating back to 1918! They far predate the modern environmental movement, and many of the members are "ecologist elders" with tremendous knowledge and insight on a vast array of natural history subjects. Board members Daphne Nagorsen and David Cook presented the award to Ken.
