SPECIES ACT MEETING AT 1 PM TODAY – UPDATED

The Federation of Woodlot Associations has arranged a field trip on Oct. 28 with federal officials about the Species at Risk Act.

Ed. note: An earlier version of this story incorrectly reported the Boundary Woodlot Association as organizing this meeting – for the record the meeting has been organized by Federation of BC Woodlot Associations and George Delisle.

A meeting organized by George Delisle and the Federation of BC Woodlot Associations that was announced in a Letter to the Editor on page 8 of the Oct. 10 issue of the Times has been rescheduled from the morning to 1 p.m.

Delisle said the new time fits the needs of some participants better.

Those interested in attending are invited to meet at the junction of Highway 3 and the Conkle Lake Road at 1 p.m. today (Monday, Oct. 28)

Delisle warns the Species at Risk Act may have implications, not just for woodlot owners, but for landowners with any sizable piece of property.

“It should be an interesting session to find out what they want, what they are talking about and what their long-term plans are,” he said.

“If they were to require permits to work on private lands then all of a sudden there are costs involved,” said Delisle. “Biologists come in at $1,200 a day.”

“I think it has some important underlying currents.
