Jennifer Gunter

At the West Boundary Community Forest, we work together to ensure the decisions we make in our forest have the best interest of the community in mind. People play a key role in the prosperity of the community forest and help build healthy communities. Today we introduce Jennifer Gunter, one of the co-founders of the BC Community Forest Association – the voice and advocate for community forests as well as communities seeking to get community forest tenures – and the long-time executive director, who has fervently supported the West Boundary Community Forest. …Gunter has always had a passion for forestry and the environment, and did her undergraduate studies in Geography and Environmental Studies from McGill University, and Masters in Resource Management from Simon Fraser University. The work that community forests across the province are undertaking, in order to adapt to climate change and reduce the risk of catastrophic wildfires, is what excites her.
