In 1989, forestry company Fletcher Challenge had plans to log an area adjacent to Main Lake. The intervention of the Quadra community prompted the BC government to create a provincial park and the degradation that would otherwise have occurred was avoided.
Forest-based recreation resources on the Discovery Islands
This project is conducting a long-term survey of natural recreation resources on the islands, both those that have been somewhat developed and those that could have high potential value in the future. Clearcut logging degrades these resources, limiting recreational use of island forests.
