This area of the Lumby website has been created to provide basic information on the Monashee Community Forest (MCF)

The Monashee Community Forest is an equal partnership between the Village of Lumby and the Splatsin First Nation.  The concept for this community forest can be traced back to feasibility studies from the late 1990’s.   The Monashee Community Forest officially came into existence when it was  registered in October 2012, with its first year of operations the following year.
