Aerial View of Hidden Grove, Sechelt, British Columbia (Arran LUT)

History of Sechelt Heritage Forest

It all began in 1986 when the District of Sechelt expanded its official boundaries.  Sandy Hook, Tuwanek and the area in between were included as well as second growth forested land with important old growth areas containing some trees 500 to 1000 years old.

In 2000 a local resident noticed tapes up for logging in what is now the Hidden Grove and the movement to save this local gem began. A Hidden Grove Park Steering Committee (a committee of the Sandy Hook Community Association) was directed by the District of Sechelt to prepare a development concept plan for that area of District Lot 3006 known as Hidden Grove or Interfor Block 350. On November 6, 2002 the original work of the committee seemed basically completed with a presentation to the District of Sechelt council.

Nevertheless from 2002 and until 2008 the Committee worked to thwart logging interests in the area as they wanted to clear cut the Hidden Grove. When the Sunshine Coast Community Forest was formed and at their first AGM, the SCCF promised no logging for 2 years, later this was extended to 5 and then to as long as they had tenure from the Province. Then and only then was real work allowed to go ahead with the work parties putting in approved trails and starting other projects.  In 2011 the SCCF tenure was extended to 25 years so the Committee could relax.

In 2011 the Sechelt Groves Society was formed using some seed money from the SHCA and including some SHCA board members on the new Society board.

Throughout 2011 and into the 2012 Society carried on with trail building and maintenance but also saw to the installation of the parking lot. It launched major dedicated fund raising for Phase 1 of a Accessibility Trail into the Ancient Grove. As funds came in work started in the August of 2011. The "Take It Easy — AYAT-TSUT" trail was officially opened on May 12, 2012.

During the same period the entrance kiosk was donated and the Trailbuilders completed its installation on September 19, 2012 

On July 12, 2012 work was started on the second Accessibility trail — Monty's Way — with the official opening on April 7, 2013.

By the spring of 2013 the Society had raised over $60,000 in funds and in kind donations as well as obtaining special support from the District of Sechelt and the Sunshine Coast Community Forest. The volunteer Trailbuilders had put in literally thousands of hours of hard labour to get everything done.

Since then the Society has taken on numerous smaller projects such as permanent trail intersection maps and interpretive signage on Monty’s Way . Plans for the near future include a second expansion of the parking lot and extensive landscaping with native plants.

More About Canada

The capital of Canada is Ottawa, in the province of Ontario. There are offically ten provinces and three territories in Canada, which is the second largest country in the world in terms of land area.While politically and legally an independant nation, the titular head of state for Canada is still Queen Elizabeth.On the east end of Canada, you have Montreal as the bastion of activity. Montreal is famous for two things, VICE magazine and the Montreal Jazz Festival. One is the bible of hipster life (disposable, of course) and the other is a world-famous event that draws more than two million people every summer. Quebec is a French speaking province that has almost seceded from Canada on several occasions, by the way..When you think of Canada, you think of . . . snow, right?But not on the West Coast. In Vancouver, it rains. And you'll find more of the population speaking Mandarin than French (but also Punjabi, Tagalog, Korean, Farsi, German, and much more).Like the other big cities in Canada, Vancouver is vividly multicultural and Vancouverites are very, very serious about their coffee.Your standard Vancouverite can be found attired head-to-toe in Lululemon gear, mainlining Cafe Artigiano Americanos (spot the irony for ten points).But here's a Vancouver secret only the coolest kids know: the best sandwiches in the city aren't found downtown. Actually, they're hidden in Edgemont Village at the foot of Grouse Mountain on the North Shore."It's actually worth coming to Canada for these sandwiches alone." -- Michelle Superle, VancouverText by Steve Smith.
