3. Meeting Topics
a. BCTS Stakeholder Project – Enrique Sanchez
– ACTION: asking that individual stakeholder groups arrange to sit with himself and Andrew to identify each areas of
interest and expectations in the Chwk Forest District. This will help with communication of proposed harvesting
plans and decide how to mediate expectations of all stakeholders. We should outline Core areas and any outlying as
well. Set up an appt with Andrew at Andrew.Boxwell@gov.bc.ca 604-702-5747.
– suggestion that CRAG send Enrique and Andrew an updated CRAG contact list. MOF would like to share this
contact list with their contractors who will in turn contact the group that may be impacted by harvesting work. There
was consensus that would be okay.
As I sit here tonight with a red Gatorade and some feel good pills, some may be thinking that I tied one on last night.. however It’s the result of an amazing day where I am left exhausted yet energized at the same time. Covered in scratches, a few bruises, and my layers of dirt have layers of dirt on them. And I will be back June 4th for the next one on the West Side.
There were many great pictures taken by Maciej(Mat) Radoszewski and can be seen on his site fantomdesigns – http://www.flickr.com/photos/fantomdesigns/sets/72157626444770233/
Today marked my 3rd Stave Lake Clean up of the 4 Wheel Drive Association of BC (4WDABC), and each year I leave feeling so perplexed at the feelings of both disgust at what the people will do to this world, and on the other hand so amazed by those who come out to support the events and the amount of effort they put into the day of clean up. Before I get into the details, I wanted to give a shout out to our amazing sponsors and people who helped make this happen.
