Our Forest Futures Salons are tailored to build community engagement and awareness on the challenges with forest health in our region and the collaborative action that is taking place.

In our recent events, we explored what happens when fire hits our forests, how decisions are made and fires are fought, and what happens to the landscape after a fire. We discussed the work being done right here in our region, including fuel reduction, restoration and wood innovation projects, all of which aim to reduce the risk of catastrophic wildfire.
