Woodlot 0007 is located in Maple Ridge, British Columbia and is managed by the BCIT Forest Society, a non-profit society. A woodlot in BC is created through an agreement between a licensee and the Ministry of Forests to manage private and crown lands. The objective of these agreements is sustainable long-term management practices on crown and private lands. Woodlot licensees are also required to protect all forest values such as fisheries, wildlife, and water quality.
Woodlot 0007 is managed as an operational woodlot. While not part of BCIT, Woodlot 0007 provides an excellent location and environs for the education, research and training needs of students and staff from the Sustainable Resource Management Program and the Fish, Wildlife and Recreation Program.
The public enjoy the use of the trails and roads for numerous outdoor activities such as; mountain biking, hiking, birding and horseback riding.
The Learning Centre facility can be booked for seminars, conferences, weddings and other events. It has a fully equipped kitchen, meeting room and an outdoor patio. Woodlot 0007 also offers an interesting variety of forested terrain for filming. A good road network gives film crews easy access to most areas of the woodlot.
The BCITFS is a member of the Fraser Valley Woodlot Association and the Federation of BC Woodlot Associations.
