The Making of Tetrahedron Park: how the conservation movement started on British Columbia’s Sunshine Coast

Raincoast Chronicles cover
“The Making of Tetrahedron Park” (my 3,000-word feature, with photos): A group of dedicated volunteers lobbied hard to save 6,000 hectares on B.C.’s Sunshine Coast, protecting old-growth forest and habitat for diverse species. This helped launch the conservation movement on the Sunshine Coast.

In the summer and fall of 1987, 240 volunteers built four wilderness cabins in the Tetrahedron region, named after Tet Peak (1,737 metres) . . .

The complete story, with historic photos, appears in Raincoast Chronicles 22, published by Harbour Publishing in the fall of 2013.
