    On the north and east sides of Darkwater Mountain, there is an area of primary forest. The image immediately below shows the northern edge of this forest.

    The image below shows the same area (in foreground) as above, but looking south toward Darkwater Lake. The southerly extent of this patch of old forest can just be seen (below the lake).

    This area is in Woodlot 1969 (Cape Mudge Forestry) and is mapped as “Darkwater Mountain Reserve”.  That designation provides no legal protection.

  • The map below is TimberWests account of forest by age class on Quadra Island. It doesnt indicate all of the old forest that has been confirmed by the Discovery Islands Forest Conservation Project, but most of the areas shown in brown are areas of old forest (>250 years).
