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 is an opportunity to inform the future management of the Dry-Belt Douglas Fir forests in the Cariboo.
Interested individuals are invited to participate in online (virtual) 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 will incorporate indigenous knowledge, and western science, while promoting resilience and balancing multiple values for future generations.
How can my contribution make a difference?
Your 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.
To register for these workshops please email Lindsey.Wood@gov.bc.ca and indicate which workshops you plan to attend. Once you are registered, you will receive a meeting package in advance of the workshop.
