British Columbia is home to more living species than any other Canadian province. This is attributed to our lush mountains and valleys, numerous lakes, rivers and diverse wetlands that have come together to form complex and varied ecosystems. Numerous large wild fires, and insect infestations tell us climate change is already underway. The Centre will showcase how modern forestry uses science to ensure sustainable forest practices are continuously re-evaluated in B.C. Exhibits and educational programs will focus on how innovation will protect our forest for generations to come.
