Sites on Crown land on Bowen are being considered for funding under the Crown Land Wildfire Risk Reduction Program. Proposed areas on Mount Gardner and Radar Hill have been approved for provincial funding for fuel management prescription development in and around critical infrastructure. Fire Management Consultants will be conducting work in the two areas in the first two weeks of February. They will be collecting stand level field data as well as laying out ribbon in areas of high fire threat that will require fuel management.
These activities are not related to industrial logging.
