Community members are invited to attend the virtual Cheakamus Community Forest (CCF) Open House scheduled for March 29, 4 to 6 p.m.
The online meeting will include presentations on the 2020 project outcomes and proposed 2021 harvesting and wildfire management plans. Attendees will also have the opportunity to ask the CCF Board members questions and provide feedback on the 2021 plans via a follow up online survey.
A recording of the online meeting and presentation materials will be available for viewing following the open house at whistler.ca/CCF. The online survey will remain open for public input until April 12, 2021.
“I encourage the community to learn more about the Cheakamus Community Forest, and where the proposed 2021 harvesting and wildfire projects will take place,” said Mayor Crompton. “This will also be a great opportunity to learn about the organization itself and how its principles and objectives inform decisions.”
The Cheakamus Community Forest is a Limited Partnership governed by a non-profit society comprised of representatives from the Resort Municipality of Whistler, Lil’wat Nation and Squamish Nation. While Whistler is perhaps best known as North America’s premier ski resort, it is located on the unceded shared traditional lands of the two First Nations. These three partners share equally in the management of the forest. Each partner has representation on the Cheakamus Community Forest Society (CCF) — an independent, not-for-profit organization.
