Scope and content

Series consists of photographs created or acquired by the British Columbia Forest Service for Project 87. In 1981 the Ministry of Forests began Project 87 to research its history as a basis for the 75th anniversary in 1987. Ministry staff collected photographs from both within the ministry and externally from museums, ex-staff and forestry associations, to provide details on the activities of the Forest Service.
