Forest Management Workshop

Spray Lake Sawmills held a couple of meetings at the Cochrane RancheHouse last week. At that meeting we distributed hard copies &/or linkages for several reports: Five Year Stewardship Report, Pre-Industrial Condition (PIC), Protected Areas Gap Analysis, and High Conservation Value Forest Assessment (HCVF). We also discussed a process for working through some of these reports with stakeholders and what we were doing with respect to preparing for an upcoming forest certification assessment.

We will be hosting a follow-up workshop on April 4, 2013. We will be providing overview presentations of some of these reports and will be having open discussions on their contents and hearing recommendations that anyone may have to offer. If you wish to view these reports ahead of time please look at the attached document. It outlines the links/pathways for where they can be found. If you are interested in attending please provide an email RSVP and we can provide you with further details on time and location. If you are unable to make the meeting but would still like to provide some input just drop me a line and we can arrange a time to sit down together: gord.lehn@spraylakesawmills.com
