Open House

Time:         3:00 pm-7:00 pm
Location:  Ucluelet Community Centre, 500 Matterson Drive

The Board of Directors invites the public of the surrounding communities to an open house to discuss current and future activity in the Barkley Community Forest.  The Board Directors and General Manager will be in attendance to answer questions and discuss the management of the community forest.   

The Barkley Community Forest Corporation, which is jointly owned by the District of Ucluelet and the Toquaht Nation, holds Community Forest Agreement K3S.  The Community Forest is managed by a Board of Directors appointed by the shareholders of the BCFC. 

The following general information will be available at the meeting: 

  • A summary of financial information from the operating years 2015 to 2022.
  • Maps showing harvesting, reforestation, and road construction from 2015 to 2022.  
  • Information on salvage and some small harvesting opportunities in the years from 2022 to 2024. 
  • Maps and information showing natural resource inventories on the forest. 
  • Information on how financial returns from harvesting and use are used by the BCFC and by the shareholders. 

The BCFC General Manager and Board are currently working on a new management plan for the community forest which will define how resources in the forest will be managed.  This will include:

  • An analysis of resources to allow determination of a sustainable rate of harvest.
  • Strategies to protect, enhance, or rebuild old growth forest, species at risk habitat and populations, riparian and fish habitat and other resources. 
  • Recreation and public use opportunities in the forest. 

This open house will also be an initial opportunity to provide information and input to this work with further public engagement planned for the future.
