Event Description

Join Canfor’s Forest Scientist, Kari Stuart-Smith, and Forestry Planner Brian Feeney to visit the site of one of the Kootenay region’s largest wildfires that burnt last summer.  We will tour the White River Fire and discuss the affects that wildfires of this magnitude have on Forest Ecology, Wildlife, and Watershed Hydrology.  We will explore how, on one hand, the fire has impacted the network of flora and fauna in the forest but at the same time brings new life and a fresh start. We will discuss Canfor’s fire salvage planning which involved communication between a network of stakeholders, First Nations, ecologists and the public to develop and refine those plans. Level: intermediate


Things to bring: water, snack, binoculars, hiking boots or sturdy shoes, dress for the weather. Lunch. May be walking through the burn-area, so be prepared to get dirty.
