Video and story by Will Koop
THE PEACHLAND COMMUNITY WATERSHED was once protected by provincial law that prohibited logging (Timber Sales) on public or Crown lands within the watershed’s forests. The video, some 30 minutes in length, tells this history as well as the tragic tales about how government foresters broke the law that protected this community watershed, and many others that were similarly protected in British Columbia since the early 1900s. This video, narrated and produced by Will Koop, the Coordinator of the BC Tap Water Alliance, follows the release of his March 18, 2019 time-lapse video of logging in the Peachland community watershed (1984 – 2018).
