The Ecoforestry Institute Society is appealing to the public to help purchase a six-acre stand of old-growth forest that lies adjacent to Wildwood Ecoforest in Yellow Point. EIS holds Wildwood in Trust for the people of British Columbia, and the purchase of the six acres will reunite this land with Wildwood. The owners of the property have offered EIS first option to purchase until July 31, 2019, at the price of $500,000. They have also offered a donation of $50,000. Administrative fees are estimated to be close to $15,000.
The six acres contains stunning old-growth Coastal Douglas-fir trees, with intact understories and canopies that have existed for centuries.
