From the Archives: St. Pierre Camp close to Trutch

This camp was close to Mile 200 on the west side of the old Alaska Highway. Every summer Prophet River people would move the camp location around a little bit so that they could have new firewood supplies and not deplete the resources of the area. They would strip the bark/cambium off of the poplar trees to kill them, and then the next year the poplars would be available as seasoned firewood.
