Once again, another crucial element of the work at the Ancient Forest – volunteerism – is alive and well! Thanks to members of the Caledonia Ramblers, PG PIRG – UNBC, Prince George Singles Activity Group as well as other community members who so enthusiastically provide the much needed labor of carrying materials and constructing the plank pathway.

The goal for Phase #2 is to build  1880 feet of plank pathway  which combined with the 2875 feet built in 2014 will total 4755 feet of plank pathway. In the first 26 days days of construction beginning May 26,th 1080 feet of plank pathway has been built with about another 800 feet remaining  to complete the entire Ancient Forest Loop with a plank pathway 26 inches wide.

Phase #3 will include adding a third board  to obtain a 36 inch wide plank pathway throughout the entire Ancient Forest Loop.
