Tune in to Folk U Radio this Friday from 1 to 3 p.m. to CKTZ 89.5 FM Cortes Community Radio or livestream on to learn more about our local forests, Wildfire Risk, Wildfire Risk Mitigation, the Cortes Community Forest, and upcoming management plans with Mark Lombard, President of the Cortes Community Forest Coopeartive and Bruce Blackwell, from BA Blackwell and Associates (forest and environmental management that specialize in helping communities with wildfire risk assessment and management). (This is a repeat!! But it's a good one.)

Ever wondered more about the forests in this region: what is the forest's natural relationship to fire? how high is our risk locally? what are inspiring models for communities to reduce fire risk? what is the community forest? how are they helping reduce local fire risk? how can you help on your property?

Send your questions in advance to or call in to the live show on Friday at 250-935-0200.
