Fire information for BC conservation areas

July 23, 2021

 

Updated: September 15, 2021

With numerous wildfires burning across British Columbia, the Nature Conservancy of Canada (NCC) is taking every precaution to ensure the safety of the public, our staff and contractors who visit our conservation lands. This includes closing access to conservation areas in wildfire-affected areas.

Wildfire control and protection is the responsibility of the BC Wildfire Service (BCWS), and NCC works closely with BCWS to monitor and manage any fire activity that occurs on NCC-owned conservation lands.

NCC encourages everyone travelling around the province to please be vigilant with all ignition sources and respect any closures that may be imposed due to wildfires or fire danger.

Access closures

As of September 15, all publicly accessible NCC conservation areas in BC are once again open.
