What is this engagement about?
The Ministry of Forests, Lands, Natural Resource Operations and Rural Development received input from British Columbians on the Dry-Belt Douglas Fir Forests which span the southern and central parts of the Cariboo Natural Resource Region. These forests provide many benefits to our communities, however, there is increasing pressure for development, recreation, and economic timber harvest, and increasingly frequent and damaging natural disturbance. This engagement was an opportunity to inform the future management of the Dry-Belt Douglas Fir forests in the Cariboo.
Interested individuals were invited to participate in online workshops to gather knowledge and seek input on future management of the Dry-Belt Douglas-fir ecosystems that surround the communities in the Cariboo Resource Region. The online workshops incorporated indigenous knowledge, and western science, while also promoting resilience and balancing multiple values for future generations.
For more information on this engagement, please read the What We Heard Report.
How can my contribution make a difference?
Input will assist the Ministry of Forests, Lands, Natural Resource Operations and Rural Development to capture interests, values, areas of focus and potential solutions regarding the future management of these forests. In addition, a What We Heard Report is coming soon.
