INTRODUCTION


Sea Crest is located in a unique coastal setting and counts amongst its amenities the presence of a highly varied plant community which contributes to its attractiveness and livability. This coastal forest ecosystem consists of Sitka spruce, shore pine, western hemlock, red alder, and Douglas fir, with an understory of smaller trees and shrubs including wax myrtle, cascara, red elderberry, western rhododendron, salal, twinberry and evergreen huckleberry. Water courses and damp areas are marked by the presence of willows. A variety of ferns and the spectacular skunk cabbage or swamp lantern are also seen here.
