About the Project
The Keex’ Kwaan Community Forest Partnership (KKCFP) is a science-based, landscape scale, community forest approach to long term sustainable watershed planning and project implementation. The overall goal is to use new techniques including Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and technology to achieve a measurable and resilient blend of timber, fish, and wildlife as well as other natural products such as berries, botanicals, firewood and other non-timber forest products to build local economic diversification and improved watershed health.
