BCCFR Inaugural Conference

Saturday, May 12, 2018
Fifty Plus Activity Centre
5872 Beach Ave.
Peachland, BC

We are a grassroots alliance of BC communities advocating for data-driven, long-term stewardship of both the timber and non-timber values of BC’s forests. We support forest management based on long-term landscape-level planning, a mandatory shared decision-making process with local communities, careful incorporation of public needs and values, and full legislative and regulatory recognition of our forest’s water, wildlife, tourism, and recreation values.

More information on the BC Coalition for Forestry Reform is available at http://www.bccfr.org.
