Selous Creek Fuel Management

The Regional District of Central Kootenay (RDCK) in collaboration with Kalesnikoff and BC Wildfire Service invites the media to attend a briefing to provide an update on the collaborative wildfire risk reduction project in Selous Creek above Nelson.

This project is supported through funding from the Forest Enhancement Society of BC and covers an area of approximately 65 hectares directly upslope from the Rail Trail on provincial Crown land. The main objectives of the project are to reduce wildfire risk by retaining large, healthy fire-resistant trees, while removing dense understory trees and surface fuels, as well as enhancing infrastructure protection for potential future suppression efforts.
