I received this email from Trevor Goward today and intend to lend my support. I visited the area back in the 1990s and it was fantastic!
Dear lichenologists A local forestry company is gearing up to log a critical portion of the Clearwater Valley near Wells Gray Park. Because this valley supports one of the world's richest macro- and mesolichen floras - more than 430 species recorded so far - I'm asking the lichenological community will help us put a stop to this. There are three ways you can help: (1) Link to the following website: http://wellsgrayworldheritage.ca/. Doing this will make clear to the B.C. government that this is more than a local issue. (2) Share this link with your Facebook friends, with a request that they pass it along. (3) Write a letter of support. If you've ever visited the Clearwater Valley and would like to help us out in this time of crisis, please drop me a line (firstname.lastname@example.org) and I'll send you the details. Many thanks to all Trevor Goward
