The majority of Island Timberlands' are in high or extreme fire danger class ratings.
As a result, all gated and ungated properties on the east and west sides of Vancouver Island are closed for public recreation this weekend.
In areas where we experience a high rate of gate vandalism, we may or may not chose to physcially shut these gates. Instead, we will take the approach of increasing awareness through signage and have our roaming security team visit recreationalists where accessible to address our concerns of the fire danger risk.
Island Timberlands would prefer if you could enjoy the beautiful forecasted summer weather closer to home and out of the backcountry this weekend.
Thank you for respecting this request.
