WBCF Takes on Five Wildfire Risk Reduction Projects with help from FESBC funding

West Boundary Community Forest (WBCF) is humbled and honoured to take on five wildfire risk reduction projects with the infusion of new grant funding of $1,137,375 from the Forest Enhancement Society of BC’s (FESBC) 2022-2023 Funding Program.


The WBCF has already started working toward proactively making the communities of Midway, Greenwood, Grand Forks, Rock Creek, and Westbridge safer from the threat of wildfires.


Dan Macmaster, RPF, Forest Manager with WBCF expressed what funding from FESBC means to the community forest. “We anticipate that this work will bring greater protection to our communities, while at the same time improving forest health, helping us employ local contractors, and working in collaboration with the Osoyoos Indian Band. These projects are a win economically, environmentally, and socially and we’re so grateful for the funding.”
