It’s been a busy month! This post goes in the “better late than never” category.
The Cheakamus Community Forest held an information session at the Squamish Lil’wat Cultural Centre on November 24, 2023. About 30 people attended and most were new faces. Feedback was positive on the new approach which made more space for learning and discussion instead of focusing on hard-to-read forest harvesting maps.
Here’s the presentation.
Attendees provided lots of food for thought for the CCF to consider. Main questions and concerns were about how old growth can be protected over the long term, how the carbon project works, how logging decisions are made and how to create other economic opportunities within the CCF.
Here’s a spreadsheet showing all the comments.
Future posts and newsletters will include information to provide more information on these topics. Thanks to everyone who attended and shared their thoughts. This is what community forestry is all about!
