Logging the SFPR

Group Hike on the South Fraser Witness Trail!

The South Fraser Witness Trail follows the route of the proposed South Fraser Perimeter 'Road' freeway through an urban forest in Surrey. Named as one of the city's five major natural area hubs in a recent study, it is home to deer, beavers, herons, owls, salmon, and endangered species such as the Red legged frog and Pacific water shrew.

Now the provincial government is starting to log the easily accessible sections of the South Fraser Freeway route, including at the west trailhead of the Witness Trail. Come on the hike to see what is at stake if the South Fraser Freeway gets built, and find out what we can still do to stop it and other freeways in the region.
