Board to audit four range tenures

QUESNEL – During the week of Sept. 27, 2021, the Forest Practices Board will audit planning and practices on four range tenures for grazing cattle in the Quesnel Natural Resource District.

Auditors will examine range activities for compliance with the Forest and Range Practices Act. The grazing areas that will be audited vary in size from 53 to 24,900 hectares and are located near Quesnel. Three tenures are located northwest of Quesnel and the fourth is located to the south.

Once the audit work is complete, reports will be prepared. If any range agreement holder may be adversely affected by the audit findings, they will have a chance to respond. The board’s final reports and recommendations will then be released to the public and government.

The Forest Practices Board is B.C.’s independent watchdog for sound forest and range practices, reporting its findings and recommendations directly to the public and government. The board audits forest and range practices on public land, as well as appropriateness of government enforcement.
