OLD-GROWTH FOREST PROTECTION

Do you want to help protect B.C.’s precious remaining Old-Growth Forest?

Join us for our March Meet The Expert session with Torrance Coste from the Wilderness Committee, and learn about the movement to protect old-growth forests in B.C.  Specifically, we'll be discussing the connection between old-growth forests and the climate crisis, with plenty of time for questions and conversation about how we can take action.

Please register below for a link to this Zoom meeting.

 

Torrance Coste is the National Campaign Director for the Wilderness Committee, which includes leading the Protecting Old-Growth campaign. Torrance grew up constantly encouraged to be outside, to learn to be comfortable in nature and in the woods, which has impacted him greatly. Torrance grew up working on a small hobby farm then put himself through university working as a labourer in the shipyard in Victoria. Before Wilderness Committee, Torrance worked in fundraising and outreach for a few other environmental organizations and initiatives. His love for nature takes him out hiking and camping every summer – he even got engaged on the West Coast Trail!
