British Columbia is well-known for its stunning natural beauty, especially their lush forests of old growth trees. But did you know that over the last few years, much of the landscape has undergone “clear-cutting”? This is where forests are logged and left with large swaths of empty land. This is a huge problem for the future climate.

Residents in cities, like Grand Forks, B.C., are facing the consequences of clear-cutting head on. Join us in this next film to see how this community is at risk of flooding and much more.

From Ramshackle Pictures, this is Waterlogged
