Eye On BC’s Forests – Winter 2022
Here in BC we didn’t want another reminder of our changing climate and its effects but we got it anyway… The floods of November 2021 will rank as one of the most costly natural disasters in Canadian history and the impacts will be with us for years to come. Water is a critical resource to British Columbians and one of the goals of BC’s forest practice regime is to ensure that forestry practices do not harm important water resources. However, there is a lot of concern from the public that our practices are not good enough and that water stewardship needs to be improved.
