about blcf

As a community-owned Community Forest, BLCF is focused on balancing social, environmental, and economic sustainability.

BLCF’s harvesting silviculture and forest management activities provide benefits for the Village of Burns Lake, First Nations partners, and for all residents of the Lakes Timber Supply Area in a sustainable manner.

The community forest extends west to Maxan Lake, north to the Augier Main Road, east to Priestly Hill, and south to the north shore of Francois Lake and is part of the Nadina Forest District.

Donations

The BLCF generously supports community initiatives and has contributed more then $2.5 million since its inception in 2000, as well as in-kind support to more than 90 organizations and projects within the community.

Our directors had the opportunity to learn from and share knowledge with other organizations on Reconciliation, forest practices, communications and more. We had a wonderful time at this event and can’t wait for next year! ... See MoreSee Less
