Whitefish Lake Fire Guard Project

Whitefish Lake First Nation plans to construct a fire guard around portions of the community that are most likely to be impacted by forest fires. Construction will involve the logging and removal of timber along the fire guard. Approximately 110 hectares will be cut. All logging will follow the Alberta Guidelines for Timber Harvest.
