PORT McNEILL—The directors and shareholders of the North Island Community Forest will share what they’ve been up to for the past year when they host an open house next weekend at the Town Office.

North Island Community Forest Ltd. partnership is made up of the municipalities of Port Alice, Port Hardy and Port McNeill, part of a larger network of rural, community-based organizations engaged in community forest management.

The community forest network is part of a movement committed to culturally, ecologically and economically sustainable forestry.

North Island residents are welcome to attend to view displays, review information and comment on any proposed operations within the North Island Community Forest.

The open house is scheduled for 1-4 p.m. Saturday, March 9 at the Port McNeill Town Office council chambers, 1775 Grenville Place. Snacks and refreshments will be served.

Those who wish to discuss the community forest with one of the directors but cannot attend the open house may email info@nicf.ca to make an appointment.
