Local historians are hastening their efforts to record the history of the forestry industry in the lower Skeena and Nass Valley region citing concerns this chapter in Terrace heritage will soon be lost.
The Terrace Regional Historical Society is looking for those who worked as loggers, truckers and millworks to share anecdotes and personal photographs from the forestry era.
Few people remain who worked in the industry during the mid-twentieth century and it is their stories which have seldom been recorded throughout Terrace’s history.
