The following gates are scheduled to be open this weekend for safe, responsible recreation:
Northwest Bay (Nanoose Bay): The gate will open at 8am and will close promptly at 3pm.
Oyster/Iron River: The gate is not scheduled to be open this weekend.
Copper Canyon (MacMillan Road, Chemainus): This gate will be open at 9:30am and closed at 4pm.
Shawnigan (Waters Road, Glenora): The gate will be open at 8am and closed at 5pm.
Port Alberni gates: Expect Canal Main to be closed, while CX91 and CX165 gates will be open.
The connector to TimberWest property at CX21 is permanently closed this weekend with road deactivation in place.
Please note we only permit public use of our private forest lands on weekends when there is a significant reduction in safety risks in working and travelling around forestry operations/vehicles.
If you are unable to leave the area after a gate has been locked, there will not be someone available to attend to unlock the gate. Plan to be out by these posted times.
Please review the posting on firewood locations if you are interested in firewood harvesting this weekend.
