Members of the public are invited to review and comment on BC Timber Sales’ proposed 2014-2019 Nadina District Forest Stewardship Plan until May 30, 2014.
This proposed forest stewardship plan describes the results and strategies for meeting government’s objectives as set out in the Forest and Range Practices Act, which governs the activities of forest and range licensees in B.C. and sets requirements for planning, road building, logging, reforestation and grazing within a forest district.
The Nadina Forest District covers approximately 2.6 million hectares in north-central British Columbia. It extends from Tweedsmuir Park in the south to the Babine Mountains in the north and from Hungry Hill in the west to the Endako River in the east. Communities in the district include Burns Lake, Houston and Granisle.
The legally required public review and comment period for forest stewardship plans allows members of the public to ask questions and express any concerns about specified areas of public lands to forest licensees and BC Timber Sales before the locations of roads and cutblocks are determined.
The proposed Nadina District Forest Stewardship Plan is available for viewing at the following locations:
- Nadina District office: 185 Yellowhead Highway, Burns Lake
- Skeena District office: 3333 Tatlow Road, Smithers
- Service BC office: 3400 - 11th Street, Houston
