About Burns Lake Community Forest

Built and run by passionate volunteers, our community forest provides significant funding to the community, that allows groups to flourish. From recreation and educational to First Nations partnerships or the communities that rely on the forest for jobs.

The BLCF operates using stringent forest management practices and was granted Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) Certification in 2017 with Ecotrust Canada—a national non-profit organization.

Burns Lake Community is a member of the British Columbia Community Forest Association, the provincial organization that collectively advocates for the viability of community forests
