Did You Know? 

BC National Forest Week is September 18 - 24! Established in 2013, the NFW-BC Coalition’s goal is to educate people about the different uses and value that we get from our forests including:

  • the production of wood products,
  • to providing local jobs,
  • to a variety of recreation opportunities, and
  • providing spiritual values.

Our Arbor Day Celebration is a great way to cap off the great work and learning done during BC National Forest Week. We want everyone in BC to have the opportunity to spend time outdoors as well as appreciate our wonderful and diverse forests.

Community Projects
