Watchers of Langley Forests(WOLF) will be holding its 2nd Annual General Meeting on May
24 at 1 pm at(see above for new venue). The membership of WOLF will gather to elect a portion of the Board of Directors. Mark Haddock,a professor of environmental law at the University of Victoria and a Langley Township resident will be the featured speaker.

WOLF is a forest conservation group in the Township of Langley. In its short period of
existence the members of WOLF have seen highs and lows. It was established in 2012 to
campaign against the sale of what is now known as the Blaauw Eco Forest in the Glen Valley
area of Langley Thanks to the generosity of the Blaauw family the Blaauw Eco forest has
since been aside as an educational,research, and conservation area for Trinity Western
University.Since January 2014 much of WOLF’s efforts were focused on persuading
Township Council not to sell Creekside Forest, an urban forest in the Aldergrove area. In early
March Council voted five to four to proceed with the sale.

Featured speaker Mark Haddock will talk about how the successful campaign to save the
Blaauw Forest relates to the conservation of old growth forests in a provincial context.
The address for the Fort Langley Community Hall is 9167 Glover Road.The membership fee
for WOLF is ten dollars.
