Clayoquot Sound Train 1993

In 1993 people "got on board"for Clayoquot and traveled by train across Canada to the Clayoquot Peace Camp, where many were arrested.


We are a grassroots environmental group. The efforts of our tiny paid staff are amplified by the work of volunteers.

There are lots of ways to get involved. Of course, there’s always the vital task of sending a message to government and industry by attending rallies and writing letters — this is something everyone can do.

Specific projects require specific talents and efforts depending on their nature. Those volunteer jobs are usually intense and short-term, and can involve event organizing, field recon, research into specific issues, photography, sign painting, costume making, and the like.

Keeping FOCS running smoothly as an organization involves ongoing tasks, such as data entry, filing, research, info tables — much of which is suitable for volunteer involvement.

We are sometimes able to take university interns for periods up to several months, depending on the student’s requirements and how they mesh with our own. If you’re interested, please inquire!

To add your energy and skills to the ongoing protection of Clayoquot Sound, email us at or call 250-725-4218.
