Bill Jones Gifting

It has been 9 years now since FoCW started  working with Pacheedaht Elder Bill Jones on the protection of the Central Walbran. On June 7th 2021 the protection of this priceless forest took a major step when the Pacheedaht Nation, Chief Jeff Jones and  Band Council ratified the 15sqkm logging deferral for this area.

On Wednesday 22nd June 2022 members of FoCW in recognition of  Bills tireless work presented him with a framed print of an Ancient Western Red Cedar that is located in the logging deferral and with a dedication that reads.

’Presented with gratitude to Pacheedaht Elder Bill Jones for his important contribution towards the protection of the Ancient forests of the Central Walbran/Kaxi:ks’

We will continue to work together towards the permanent protection of this area and others.
