Logging in the Jungles

Since the 1880s, logging has played an important role in the development of this region. The area north of Powell River, stretching up to Drury Inlet known by loggers as the “Jungles” is a complex maze of islands, inlets and channels. Don’t miss the outside logging exhibits – the Hayes-Anderson logging truck and the 1916 Empire Steam Donkey, and be sure to take your picture on the logging truck in the gallery!

Museum at Campbell River respectfully acknowledges the Liǧʷiɫdax̌ʷ First Nation, on whose traditional lands we work to preserve, interpret and share the collective human history of North Vancouver Island. The Liǧʷiɫdax̌ʷ First Nation is comprised of the We Wai Kai, Wei Wai Kum and Kwiakah First Nations. Our closest neighbors are the Coast Salish Xwemalhkwu, Klahoose and K’ómoks First Nations.

These nations have close connections to the land where Campbell River is located today.
