    Upset Clear-cut Logging in Kananaskis

    It's true... I received two emails on this clear cutting venture this week... please see below! The meeting June 15 is important! You can also write a letter to the provincial ministers involved.

    The pdf attached below is an appeal from the Bragg Creek Environmental Coalition for recreational users to protest government plans to do a lot more logging in the West Bragg area.

    Subject: Clear-cut logging in Kananaskis

    The impact of industrial activity on Calgary's water supply and on recreation and wildlife in Kananaskis is unsustainable. The value of the land and what it represents to people should convince the government of Alberta to put a higher priority on protecting Kananaskis. Under current policy, the primary use of Kananaskis is logging.

    Spray Lakes Sawmills has management authority over the forest of the foothills from Sundre to the southern border of Kananaskis. They plan to clear-cut 66% of the area. Most of the rest is inaccessible mountain slopes or curtains of trees along pathways or around campgrounds and trailheads. They are accepting input on their Forest Management Plan until June 23 when it goes Alberta Sustainable Resource Development for final approval. If they continue to clear-cut vast tracts of Kananaskis, they will have a severe impact on recreational activities and the businesses that rely on the appeal of the wilderness to attract visitors.

    The multi-use policy regulating access to Kananaskis is not working. Kananaskis Country needs to be protected. Access should be the sole responsibility of Community Development, Parks and Protected Areas.

    Please read the "Clear-cut Logging in Kananaskis" handout (270 KB Acrobat file) located on the Internet here: http://www.braggcreek.ca/pdf/clear-cut.pdf, or go to www.braggcreek.ca/forest for more info.

    braggcreek.ca is the web guide "Gateway to Kananaskis". Any help you can provide to build awareness of this issue would be most appreciated.
