About our program

The Fort Nelson First Nation (FNFN) Lands Department serves Fort Nelson First Nation and honours our treaty by mobilizing our traditional values, knowledge & practice to manage, conserve and protect our traditional lands for future generations. We aim to expand our existing field program to build a Guardian program that increases our on-the-land: 1) presence, 2) stewardship, 3) self-sufficiency and 4) knowledge. Currently, we conduct environmental monitoring and data collection, habitat restoration (including prescribed burns), traditional land use and knowledge research, cultural training, harvester support and cabin-building initiatives throughout our territory. We aim to expand this work to include land and river patrol and other co-management activities.
