Public Firewood Opportunities for the Weekend of May 9-10

*UPDATED May 8*
Our warming weather is leading to increasing forest fire risk conditions.  This has caused the curtailment of firewood cutting opportunities.

1.  In Errington/Qualicum:  No firewood will be available here this weekend.

2.  In Nanoose Bay: No firewood will be available here this weekend.

3.  In South Nanaimo:  No firewood will be available here this weekend.

For non-fundraiser firewood:
For Saturday cutting only:

In Shawnigan (Glenora) and Chemainus (Copper Canyon): Firewood permits can be purchased at the Cowichan Regional Visitor  Center in Duncan, next to the Forest Discovery Center.  Their hours fluctuate in the spring months; we advise you call ahead to make sure they are open when you plan to visit to purchase a permit - 1-888-303-3337.  See the gate opening post for information on gate timing.

In Port Alberni: Firewood permits can be purchased at the Visitor Information Center at the east side of town. The hours can fluctuate so give them a call first at 250-724-6535 to see if they are open.  They will provide a map to three areas open for firewood cutting close to town.
