To further our fuel mitigation work on Goat Mountain, the BC Wildfire Service will be supporting the Creston Community Forest by conducting a prescribed burn. A prescribed burn helps to reduce the severity of future wildfires and related threats to the Creston Valley.
The burn will start at roughly 1KM up Goat Mountain FSR and will cover 12 hectares over 2 blocks. The exact timing of the burn will depend on weather conditions but it could happen as early as Tuesday, March 30th. The burning will only occur when conditions are favourable and the venting index rating is good. However, even with favourable conditions, light smoke may linger throughout the following days.
