River Valley Prescribed Fire

River Valley Prescribed Fire Case Study

Filmed in April 2022, the River Valley Prescribed Fire was an 80-100 hectare burn implemented by Lil’wat Nation with support from BC Wildfire Service, Pemberton Fire Rescue and Pemberton Meadows Fire. The project took place on Lil’wat Nation Traditional Territory outside of Pemberton, BC with the objective of protecting the community. The case study provides an overview of the three phases of a prescribed fire lifecycle and shows the value of partner collaboration when implementing a project of this scale.
