Since mid September, BLCF has been completing landscape fire hazard abatement burning and block pile/slash burning in the Guyishton/Mackenzie area. These activities are not only completed to implement required Wildfire Act requirements, but also to support the implementation of our landscape fire project. We closely monitor these activities, using the Nadina Smoke Management Plan and BC Venting forecast.
