Healthy forests forum planned

Selkirk College and its school of environment and geomatics invites the public to attend a community dialogue on BC forest management

Selkirk College and its school of environment and geomatics invites the public to attend a community dialogue on BC forest management as part of the Healthy Forests, Healthy Communities initiative.

It will be held December 1 between 9 a.m. and noon at the Selkirk College Castlegar campus in the staff lounge.

Community dialogue sessions will be held across the province to constructively explore the expressed needs of concerned citizens, helping to determine if current management practices enable local forests to satisfy their public purpose. A wide range of knowledgeable forest leaders are raising concerns about the future of BC’s forests and the potential impact on families and communities.

This is an ideal forum to send or emphasize your message to forest land management. Attendees will hear from a panel of forest experts involved in forest land management as well as have an opportunity to work in small groups to share their ideas about the future of forest land management. Come voice your concerns on what forest lands management in West Kootenay and BC needs to ensure the health of your family and community.
