Film screening of Community Forests
Monday, Feb. 13th at 7:00pm
Rural Community of Upper Miramichi Office, 6094 Route 8 (Boiestown)
There’s a change in B.C.’s forests, and forest communities — a change that’s good for the forests, good for the people who live and work there, and good for the buyers and users of wood.
The change is the establishment of community forests, a new form of forest tenure in B.C. The forests are managed by local communities, and the benefits stay in the communities.
The film will introduce to the concept of community forest and six very different community forests. The six mini-profiles show the ways in which local economies are being diversified, how forests are being managed for all resources, not just timber, and above all, how these communities have become better places to live.
The film will be followed by discussion with refreshments.
