Conservation Planning for the Wells Barkerville Community Forest
The Wells-Barkerville Community Forest (WBCF) is a small, 4300 ha forest in the BC interior wet-belt forest with important value economically and ecologically, and for contributing to the quality of life and the continued ability to attract tourists to the region. The purpose of this project is to work with the WBCF to conduct conservation planning activities to help:
1) identify locations of critical value;
2) examine ecological connectivity within the Forest and ecoregionally; and
3) build capacity within the Forest communities, to inform planning and management as well as initiatives to improve connectivity and resiliency within the region.
