CNC Research Forest Society Legacy Fund

In 2019, the College of New Caledonia (CNC) Research Forest Society launched a Legacy Fund supporting projects with a focus on environmental improvement, renewable natural resource education and/or outreach programs, outdoor recreation improvement, or social/environmental commitment to the local communities.  The Legacy Funds are available as a result of the harvest and sale of spruce beetle affected timber within the CNC Research Forest units located north of Prince George.
