About the Prince George Region

Wildlife viewingOur Northern forests range from boreal spruce and Poplar in the northeast to high-elevation balsam and cedars along the Rockies, to the Lodgepole pine and Douglas-fir forests of the Interior plateau.  The surrounding landscape includes magnificent mountains, boreal forests, pristine lakes, winding rivers and streams, and abundant wildlife such as moose, deer, black and grizzly bears, elk, and mountain goats.

Our tours operate in the northern part of the Interior Plateau, the Omineca Mountains to the north, sections of the Rocky Mountain Trench to the east and part of the Cariboo Range to the south.  The main forest ecosystems in the region are boreal, white and black spruce, Engelmann spruce-sub-alpine fir, Interior cedar-hemlock, and sub-boreal spruce zones.

Our Vision and Goals

Forest Industry Practices at WorkOur goal is to share information with the public about current forestry practices, past practices, and the future direction of forest management.  We want to promote a better understanding of the forest industry and the role it plays in the local economy and environment and advance the cause of forestry.

We hope to develop public appreciation for the positive environmental and economic benefits of British Columbia's forest industry, and encourage the wise use and management of all forestry-related resources including wood, wildlife, soil and water.
