Ecotourism advocates point to a fresh future in the forests
When members of the Ancient Forest Alliance asked Port Renfrew restaurant owner Jessica Hicks to host a public meeting about a stand of old growth trees dubbed Avatar Grove, Hicks thought she might use the event as a fundraiser for the fledgeling environmental group. Then, reflecting on her Coastal Kitchen Cafe's place in the community and the smouldering tension between environmentalists and B.C.'s logging towns, Hicks decided a simple information session might ruffle fewer feathers.

The discovery of numerous 12 to 15 feet (3.7 to 4.6 meters) wide old-growth stumps recently logged near the Avatar Grove on Vancouver Island prompted the Ancient Forest Alliance to create of a new Facebook group where members can upload their largest stump photos.
