Some years ago Trevor Goward, Dave Connell and Darwyn Coxson published an article in BCJEM, reviewing landscape level management of the upper Fraser River watershed and outlining scenarios for the creation of new protected areas for rare ancient cedar stands. The authors are pleased to report that today Premier Christy Clark announced the creation of the 11,190 ha Ancient Forest provincial park, essentially as proposed in the BCJEM article.
