Access information for the weekend of August 29-30

All Island Timberlands' property on Vancouver Island and the Sunshine Coast is closed to public access due to the forest fire risk.

We understand there this precipitation in the forecast.  Until we can assess the impact on the forest fire risk to our property following any precipitation, the property closure will remain in place.

This includes areas accessed through gates, or through trails.

Please respect the closure at this time.

If you spot a wildlife, report it to the Province on your mobile phone at *5555.

  1. Is it possible that there will be any openings following precipitation on Friday? Or will the gates be closed all weekend regardless?

  2. We will update here if we determine the fire danger has decreased significantly over wide regions.

  3. "... If you spot a wildlife, report it to the Province on your mobile phone at *5555."
    I guess this is a typo. Otherwise I'm pretty sure to spot wildlife once the gates are open. What wildlife should we report then? Deers, bears or cougars only? ;-)

  8. Access to areas such as Northwest Bay and Mt. Arrowsmith will be determined by the forest fire risk. We will have a posting up by Thursday night. Right now the conditions are looking favourable for both areas to be open for the long weekend.

  10. Yes, there was a typo in the posting, where 'wildlife' should be 'wildfire.'
