Being the daughter of a logger and growing up in the wilds of BC’s temperate rainforest, Barbara has seen first hand the devastation caused by clear-cutting. She has been arrested protesting these practices and brought pressure to the publications that import pulp made from ancient trees to find sustainable alternatives.

There are many great environmental organizations she supports but these are the two she has been involved with on the ground:
