Forest Enhancement Society of BC – February Newsletter

February 26, 2021

We’ve developed this monthly newsletter to curate the good news stories we share across the province featuring FESBC-funded projects which are seeing excellent economic, social, and environmental benefits. Stories are shared in collaboration with our project partners, and we were pleased to have Minister Katrine Conroy share a story this month on FESBC funding for Intake 7. This month, we highlight the following: New grants help to use more wood fibre; Collaboration in the Okanagan reduces wildfire risk to the water supply; Newly funded project in the Cariboo collaborates with Tsi Del Del; and Wildfire risk reduction work near Nelson. FESBC helps government reduce greenhouse gas emissions and wildfire risk while generating green energy, enhancing fibre utilization, and building new economic opportunities for all British Columbians, including many indigenous peoples and those living in rural communities.
