Supporting our community

This is where we get to shine a light on the local innovators, change-makers, volunteers and businesses that make up our community!

Supporting Suncoast Woodcrafters Guild
Annual Toys & Gifts for Families Program

Each year, the Suncoast Woodcrafters Guild members hand craft wooden toys and gifts for Sunshine Coast Community Services.  They create a variety of impeccably crafted  items and each one is donated to local children and families, or used in Community Services drop-in spaces. 

 

The Sunshine Coast Community Forest is pleased to have the opportunity to support our talented wood crafting community with an annual donation, supporting the purchase of wood materials for these special projects since 2015.

Come meet the Woodcrafters Guild at our next WoodExpo!

Local Lumber

Burnett Creek Forest Products is a custom cut sawmill specializing in  top quality fir and cedar products.

Suncoast Lumber on Field Road sells cedar lumber, siding, chips and sawdust and is open for public sales on Saturdays 8am-3pm.

Prioritizing Local Sales

The Sunshine Coast Community Forest makes supporting our community a priority in everything we do, including log sales.  We have directed our log broker to sell our locally grown logs as close to home as possible, because we understand that dollars that stay in our community are worth more than their face value. 

 

We are proud to support our local mills big and small. 

 

Most mills have some level of specialization or niche, and they have specific requirements for the logs they buy.  Sometimes, we have logs that are of a type or size that can’t readily be use on the Sunshine Coast, or even in BC – and in those cases our logs go to their best possible use somewhere else

Habitat Restoration with the
Sunshine Coast Wildlife Project

In 2015, a devastating forest fire burned through 400 hectares of forest on the west side of Sechelt Inlet.

 

The Sunshine Coast Wildlife Project is a small group of biologists working to restore wetland ecosystems with the support of the Community Forest and consent of the shíshálh Nation. 

 

Six wetland restoration sites have been completed and ongoing monitoring of these areas continues, as well as surveys to identify additional suitable sites for future habitat enhancement projects.
