Munro Prescribed Fire

Munro Prescribed Fire Case Study

Filmed in October 2022 outside of Peachland BC, this collaborative burn project included several partners, including the Penticton Indian Band, Westbank First Nation, Okanagan Nation Alliance, Gorman Brothers Ltd., Okanagan Shuswap Resource District, the Ministry of Forests and the BC Wildfire Service. The objectives of the project were to provide a level of community protection from wildfire by reducing fuel after harvesting; to restore the ecosystem, including the mule deer winter range; and to enhance Indigenous cultural values in the area while also supporting the traditional use of fire as a tool to improve the landscape.
