Environment and Sustainability Advisory Council
After the Fire's leaders convened the Environment and Sustainability Advisory Council (ESAC) back in 2018 to bring conservation and resilience organizations together in the greater North Bay to share best practices and identify opportunities to collaborate together to advocate and strengthen networks.
The ESAC is working to:
- Articulate a vision of healthy lands, across forests, working lands and the urban environment.
- Develop resilience in the form of building and strengthening human networks.
- Design incentive programs for private landowners.
