Beach Trail Forest History

Beach Trail Forest History
by Tom Koleszar, 19 Jan

On a cool Saturday morning, 14 naturalists lead by Rod Tysdal gathered at the Willingdon Beach Trail (the old Michigan & Puget Sound railroad grade) for a leisurely walk up the trail.

Along the way we examined much of the old logging equipment displayed there.  Rod is very knowledgeable with regards to logging history and practices, and we all learned a great deal!  He also had many fascinating forestry stories to tell!  We also talked about the trees and plants along the way, learning something of the forests that were native to the coast in the Powell River area.

All in all, a great way to spent a Saturday morning in winter!
