  • Kingfisher Lake Grove

    Project Staff



    Tiny Kingfisher Lake and wetlands are on Saxon Creek. The forest around the grove has been heavily logged in recent years by TimberWest, but the lake and scattered old-growth Douglas firs on the hill south of the lake are an oasis compared to the nearby clearcuts. The full extent of the remaining primary forest in this area is unknown as of 2021. The largest tree found in a preliminary survey had a circumference at breast height of 14.4 feet. Saxon Creek contains fish and had a beaver dam on it in 2019. Plants observed included Douglas Aster, Eyebright, Musk Flower, and Marsh Skullcap.

  • 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).
