The legacy Project is set to commemorate Fort St. John as the 2009 Forest Capital of B.C.

Last year, the Association of B.C. Forest professionals chose Fort St. John, to celebrate and give recognition to the valuable role the forests around the city have in the environmental and economic health of the community.

The Forest Capital Committee will be showcasing this honour by unveiling newly designed signs for the Fish Creek Community Forest.

Noticeably on the signs are Dane-Zaa translations of local animal, plant and tree names. The Dane-Zaa language is spoken in the Fort St. John area by the Beaver First Nations.

The City of Fort St. John would like to extend their thanks to the following members of the Forest Capital Committee for participating in this project: Lance Ollenberger and Victoria Kress from the Ministry of Forests, Kieran Broderick from Treaty 8 Tribal Association and Darrell Regimbald from Canfor.
