About ELF

ELF identifies mature or old-growth forests on the Sunshine Coast (45 min ferry ride from Vancouver) and then builds trails to gain access for the public to visit them. Our mission is to create connectivity for biodiversity to flourish. We use research to show government that these forests are rare. We have been successful in having 4 forests saved from being logged using this approach.
This is a social impact experience where 100% of what you pay for this experience goes to ELF. .
