Three years ago, our community asked for a pause in logging and a pubic consultation on the future of North Cowichan’s Municipal Forest Reserve.
Now we are being given the opportunity to tell the Municipality what we "value" about the forest reserve in an online survey.
This short survey can be directly accessed at:
or via the North Cowichan Forestry website at:
North Cowichan is seeking community input about what we value in the Municipal Forest Reserve and how this area should be managed for future generations.
The results will help shape the future of the place we have come to lovingly know as the Six Mountains — Prevost, Sicker, Richards, Maple, Stoney, and Tzouhalem.
In 2018 the community came together to call for a different way of doing things in our forests – calling for the end to clearcutting and industrial-style plantation forestry and a shift to ecosystem-based management. Do you still envision forests managed primarily for their ecological values and function, climate resiliency, viewscapes, tourism, recreation and fire hazard? Do you still want to explore carbon-credit projects to generate forest revenue while restoring ecological function? If so, this is the time to engage and let the municipality know that what you said in 2018 holds true today.
The future of the Six Mountains is ours to decide now.
