Willmore Wilderness Park fire management plan

Description

The intent of this Fire Management Plan is to recommend fire management strategies to mitigate wildfire threat to landscape and species values, as well as communities; minimize threats to forest health (e.g. mountain pine beetle infestation); and allow natural fire regimes to re-establish across the landscape, while prioritizing ecological integrity. In order to meet the intent, a variety of fire management strategies will be employed. The strategies include zoning the Willmore for wildfire management between a natural fire zone where natural fires may be permitted to burn and a managed fire zone where fires will generally continue to be suppressed. Currently the entire Willmore Willmore Wilderness Park Fire Management Plan – November 2006 Wilderness Park is a managed fire zone with full suppression. Enabling a natural fire zone as soon as possible reduces the potential to impact natural fire cycles.
