“We must protect the forests for our children, grandchildren and children yet to be born. We must protect the forests for those who can’t speak for themselves such as the birds, animals, fish and trees.” Qwatsinas [Hereditary Chief Edward Moody], Nuxalk Nation
As for the kids, they feel we should protect everything including, but not limited to, drainage areas. For them, this is our local stream when it rains, a giant sandbox when it’s dry. They love to play there and are always disturbed when trash washes in. So we put on our muck boots and gardening gloves and cleaned it up!
The fruits of their labor- a clean place to play and explore.
