@spelkumtncommunityforest will be undertaking an important fuel-thinning project near One Mile Lake. PVTA is assisting SCF to ensure selected trail-side trees are retained and that all user groups are kept up to date on trail access. Some trails will be closed for public safety starting on January 3rd 2024. More information from SCF is below:
SCF, through funding from FESBC, will be carrying out fuel thinning work near OneMile Lake. The project encompasses high hazard forest land and is part of ongoing work to reduce risk to nearby residences, infrastructure and downtown Pemberton.
We recognize this is a high use trail area and Líl'wat Spirited Ground. Extensive engagement has been done with Líl'wat Nation and trails organizations. One of the key planning parameters was to reduce impacts to trails and sensitive ecosystems while still achieving risk reduction objectives.
Líl'wat Forestry Crews will be conducting the work - manual pruning, piling and burning. Some trails will be closed for public safety. Please obey all signs and instructions from the crew.
Work and trail closure information will be updated as regularly as possible.
