in Partnership with Osoyoos Indian Band
managing forests for future generations
The Osoyoos Indian Band (OIB) and the West Boundary Community Forest have a strong partnership in the Boundary.
We have a shared Forest Stewardship Plan we’ve followed for the past 5 years. It focuses on a variety of objectives, including best approaches to harvesting, and managing the lands for future generations.
OIB foresters have worked on specific cutting permits in the WBCF, conducting layout, mapping, and professional field reviews for possible culturally significant areas and sites. OIB crews have also provided road-building and logging services and they continue to support our development and projects throughout the community forest.
