Partnership with The University of British Columbia Kicks Off

The University of British Columbia's (UBC) Masters of Sustainable Forest Management Program officially kicked off its collaborative project with the West Boundary Community Forest and Osoyoos Indian Band this Monday, January 22.

Led by Ken Byrne, Lecturer and Coordinator of the program at UBC, a team of 19 students is currently in local communities and the community forest, working directly with forest professionals, Indigenous communities, and local stakeholders to create landscape-level plans that address emerging issues such as managing old growth, fire planning, and enhancing riparian forest resiliency.

This partnership represents a significant step forward in integrating academic expertise with community-driven solutions, ensuring students gain a deeper understanding of forestry practices and incorporate community values into plan development.
