Nestled between the Purcell and Selkirk Mountains, we are a not-for-profit forest corporation managing the Creston Community Forest. Our focus is wildfire risk reduction, education, recreation and community resiliency for future generations.
A Community Forest is an area-based forest tenure awarded by government to communities to enhance their local control over forest management. Community forests create local jobs and keep profits within the community.
We manage over 21,000 hectares of land with primary objectives to promote a healthy, sustainable community forest ecosystem, while fostering a thriving timber industry that benefits the entire Creston Community.
