In the BC interior, the city of Quesnel is working together to respond to a crisis: the forests they depend on have been decimated by wildfires and beetle outbreaks. As a result community partners have come together to launch the Forestry Initiatives Program.
This program has taken the complex challenges the community faces and approached them as opportunities. By advocating for landscape analysis and restoration, wildfire protection, and innovative manufacturing, Quesnel is positioning itself to be sustainable and resilient.
When local governments, First Nations, and industry stakeholders all have a voice, we can build a solution that works for everybody.
