Masset Haida Gwaii, BC
InFORM volunteer Kurt headed out to the beach shortly after Haida Gwaii had experienced ~120 kph winds from a significant fall/winter storm. Haida Gwaii is ~450 miles north of Vancouver and 80 miles west of Prince Rupert and are the most westerly islands in Canada. They have been home for the Haida First Nation for at least 8000 years. This sample was collected near the village of Masset on the north coast of Haida Gwaii.
