The Province has released a map of the boundaries for the new Provincial Park that protects part of the inland temperature rainforest near Dome Creek. The Provincial Park covers 11,190-hectares and include the Ancient Forest boardwalk built by volunteers that helps tourists enjoy the ancient cedar trees (1000-2000 years old) without damaging the ecosystem. In 2015, more than 20,000 visitors used these trails, set amongst the towering trees. Premier Christy Clark said they will work on having the area designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The Ancient Forest is part of the Interior Cedar Hemlock forest, the only known inland temperate rainforest in the world.
