Birch Hills County is located in the Central Peace Region, bordered by the Peace River to the north and the Smoky River to the east. Located within the County are the hamlets of Eaglesham, Peoria, Tangent, Wanham and Watino. Oil and Gas provide the largest sector of employment in the county.

Fire Advisory

Because of the amount of rain received in the last few days the County has moved down to a fire advisory. If you are planning on burning, please notify the County office. At this time no burning of windrowed trees is allowed but burning of small brush piles is allowed.
