Bowery Creek Cove
Plate 8. BOWERY CREEK COVE: 1920 - 1995 The aspen (Populus tremuloides) have increased in height while the conifers, primarily Douglas-fir (Pseudotsuga menziesii) have increased in both height and numbers. Most of the conifers in the 1920 photo were growing on rock outcrops or other fire refugia where they were at least partially protected from once frequent fires at this site. Fishlake was a major gathering point for native peoples over the millennia and aboriginal fires were common in the past. Bowery Haven Lodge added an artificial harbor and marina since 1920.
