The Cheakamus Community Forest is committed to managing the forest so that it is healthy and climate resilient into the future. It says so right in the Strategic Plan. Under its Ecosystem-based Management approach, the CCF considers multiple forest values like cultural values, wildlife, sensitive areas and recreation uses. We are also committed to listening to our community members. Since we released the first draft 5-year harvesting plan in May 2023, we’ve continued to assess the proposed areas and developed an annual planning process with WORCA. This week, the updated plans were posted on the Harvesting webpage. Take a look, drop us a line through the Contact Us page.
