The Rain Forests of Home: Profile of the North American Bioregion

THE RAIN FORESTS OF HOME: PROFILE OF THE NORTH AMERICAN BIOREGION
by Ecotrust/Interrain Pacific; P. Schoonmaker, B. von Hagen and E. Wolf, eds. (1997)

This publication is one result of the conference on the coastal temperate rain forests of North America held at Whistler in 1994. It brings together a diverse array of thinkers--conservationists, community organizers, botanists, anthropologists, zoologists, First Nations, ecologists, and others--to present a multilayered, multidimensional portrait of the coastal temperate rain forest and its people. Joining natural and social science perspectives, the book provides readers with a valuable understanding of the region's natural and human history, along with a vision of its future and strategies for realizing that vision.

More Than the Sum of Our Parks: People, Places and a Protected Areas System for British Columbia

MORE THAN THE SUM OF OUR PARKS: PEOPLE, PLACES AND A PROTECTED AREAS SYSTEM FOR BRITISH COLUMBIA.
by Ecotrust Canada and Ecotrust, 1997

We have produced a critique of B.C.’s protected areas, especially with reference to the Park Act’s prejudice to First Nations rights. More than the Sum of Our Parks advocates through proposed new legislation, a better accommodation of First Nations rights and a wholesale re-thinking of the role of protected areas in our society. The publication includes a folded 18" x 18" map in a back pocket that depicts the current state of B.C.’s protected areas overlayed with First Nations land claims areas.
