Protect Ursus Valley

Monday, May 15, 1995
This is a 1995 Wilderness Committee education report about the Ursus Valley. Located right in the geographic heart of Clayoquot Sound is the 6,567 hectare Ursus, a never-clearcut watershed, blanketed in towering moss-hung old growth trees and rich in wildlife and salmon. This still-wild valley is part of Ahousaht First Nation's Territory. A plan by MacMillan Bloedel to build a logging road along the Ursus' narrow valley bottom accelerated efforts to protect this special valley. The road plans were eventually dropped and the Ursus remains roadless to this day. Efforts continue to see the Ursus permenantly put off-limits to logging.
