Schooner Cove Sand Dune Restoration

In March of 2017 the Central Westcoast Forest Society (CWFS), in partner with Pacific Rim National Park Reserve carried out restoration on a section of Schooner Cove sand dunes. 

Coastal sand dunes are found throughout the whole of the Pacific Coast of North America, yet only a few are remaining. Within the past 100 years British Columbia has recorded a 56% loss of dunes across coastal areas. Nearby in Pacific Rim National Park Reserve, not far away from Tofino we are now able to watch a local dune habitat being revived. Walking up Long Beach northbound and crossing Schooner Beach, the newly gained dune habitat is located between Box Island and Schooner Cove.
