These moss covered branches reach down to the ground almost like twisted fingers during fall in the rain forest of Goldstream Provincial Park and the leaves have turned red and yellow as they prepare to fall off the trees in this park on Vancouver Island.

Thick green moss covers the branches of a tree during fall in the rainforest of Goldstream Provincial Park, with the red and yellow leaves in the background getting ready to fall from the tree. Goldstream Provincial Park is located in Victoria on the southern part of Vancouver Island in British Columbia. Due to the nature of the rainforest habitat in Goldstream Provincial Park, many leaves fall from the trees when the weather starts to get colder, but also, due to the tree cover and the lack of sunlight being able to get through, trees will often become covered with moss as it is an environment that it thrives in.

There are so many species of moss that unless you are an expert it would be virtually impossible to identify what kind it is just be looking at it. Moss loves damp and shady locations, so that is why when you are walking through a rainforest biome, you will be bound to see many different types of moss.

Goldstream Provincial Park is a natural habitat and it is left untouched for everyone to enjoy, so moss can grow there undisturbed. It is a real treat to take a walk through the park, especially during the salmon runs or during the Bald Eagle feeding times. The park is dedicated to environmental conservation, as it contains some of the biggest and oldest trees on the island. Don't forget to look up though as you walk or you will miss interesting views such as this one.
