director_jmassier.jpgJohn Massier and his wife Hazel operate a silviculture company “Cottonwood Reforestation” east of Quesnel in the heart of the Cariboo.

Over the past 35 years, John, Hazel and their crews have planted over 40 million trees in every corner of the Cariboo Chilcotin. In addition, they operate Woodlot #1406, which encompasses 600 hectares of Crown land surrounding their private lands along the Cottonwood River, Umiti and John Boyd Creeks.

John is active with the local Quesnel Woodlot Association and serves as a Director on the provincial body, the Federation of BC Woodlot Associations. He is very interested in salmon enhancement and has partnered with Fisheries and Oceans Canada in the past to create off-stream habitat for juvenile Chinook salmon on his own land and woodlot from abandoned placer mining ponds along the river.

John serves as the Director for Electoral Area C of the Cariboo Regional District, representing the areas of Barlow Creek, Cottonwood, Barkerville and Bowron Lake. He became a Fraser Basin Council Director in 2009 and currently serves on the Operations Committee, Community and Regional Sustainability Committee and Cariboo-Chilcotin Regional Committee.

About the Fraser Basin Council

The Fraser Basin Council (FBC) is a charitable non-profit organization that brings people together to advance sustainability in the Fraser River Basin and throughout BC. Established in 1997, FBC is a collaboration of four orders of government (federal, provincial, local and First Nations) along with those from the private sector and civil society. We work with people in multiple sectors, helping them find collaborative solutions to today’s issues through a commitment to the social, economic and environmental dimensions of sustainability. Our focus is on healthy water and watersheds, action on climate change and air quality and strong, resilient communities and regions.
