The word “fire” can bring a variety of images to mind, depending on a person’s past experiences. In some cases, fires can be beneficial to the landscape. Fire is a natural part of most ecosystems and is required to maintain balance in our forests and grasslands. Introducing more low-intensity fires in the Boundary region under carefully controlled conditions can help restore an ecosystem to help protect nearby communities and benefit watersheds, wildlife populations, and the timber supply.

This spring, the B.C. government is partnering with the Penticton Indian Band, Osoyoos Indian Band, and the West Boundary Community Forest to conduct a 50-hectare prescribed burn approximately three kilometres northwest of the Rock Creek fairgrounds. The Regional District of Kootenay Boundary will be assisting in the communications of this project by facilitating an online information webinar that will take place on March 17, 2022 from 7:30 – 8:00 pm, with B.C. government staff.
