Local Voices: Vanishing Skid Roads, Visible Remnants of Logging Above Lynn Valley, 1895-1915 with Larry Marshik
Wednesday, April 10 at 6 p.m.–7:30 p.m.Free
A visual exploration of logging on the North Shore, from the forests via flumes and skid roads to the mills at Burrard Inlet. After a career as a land surveyor, Larry Marshik turned to exploring his “backyard”: North Vancouver’s mountains and forests. In West Vancouver, logging activity took advantage of the creeks. Today, the Old Growth Conservancy and Lighthouse Park are home to the few remaining “big trees” of the Pacific Northwest rainforest.
