Community Forestry is a forest operation managed by local government, Indigenous communities, community groups, or any combination of the three. It is an approach to manage forest resources that has proven to be both ecologically sustainable and economically beneficial for its respective community. The 2022 BC Community Forest Association Conference will be held in Nakusp, from October 19 – 21. BCCFA Communications Manager Susan Mulkey said that the conference is one of the marquee events hosted by the organization. …“What’s really special about this year’s conference is the conference will also celebrate our organization’s 20th year anniversary,” Mulkey noted. …The conference will begin on Tuesday, October 18, with a tour of the Kalesnikoff Mass Timber Plant.
