Healthy forests are vital for supporting livelihoods, communities, and well-being. But, forest management faces many challenges - drought, wildfires, and pests such as the mountain pine beetle.
Understanding forest users’ values and priorities are essential for finding solutions to managing healthy and resilient forests.
Our research team is inviting people who interact with forests (e.g. hunters, hikers, fishers, foragers, conservationists, birders, forestry workers) to join a series of workshops in Quesnel. This workshop time slot is specific to recreational groups such as hikers, mountain bikers, snowshoers or other. If you fit into another category and would like to attend, please let us know.
Study participants will share views on what goals and practices should be used to manage forests. You will learn about a range of forest management options for harvesting, replanting, and managing ecosystems.
Your input will help inform recommendations for forest policy and practice in British Columbia.
