2. What we heard/planning and design

Parks Canada will review and carefully analyse all public comments received and use this to inform any needed revisions to the project.

3. Implementation

If approved and funded, the project will begin in the fall and winter of 2018/2019.
As a key step in the ongoing, collaborative wildfire protection for Banff National Park, Parks Canada is planning a large, multi-year fuel reduction project on the west side of Sulphur Mountain. This will be accomplished by thinning the forest; pruning individual trees to remove lower branches that can act as a ladder for a fire, and removing downed woody debris. Reducing forest fuels will help to lower the intensity and complexity of managing any potential wildfire in the area.

From May 9 – June 25, 2018, Parks Canada invites you to review the plan and let us know if there are any impacts we may have missed or not fully considered.
