Event Date(s):

7:00pm - 9:00pm

Are you worried about the clear-cutting around Fernie? Join us for a public forum on logging on private land in the Elk Valley to learn about what’s going to be logged next, how much has already been cut and why private forest land logging in the Elk Valley hurts our communities, trails, environment and wildlife.

You’ll have a chance to learn why the Elk Valley is unique, with a third of the landscape in private hands and one eighth private forest owned by Canwel, and why logging in private forests barely has to follow any rules at all. Come share your views with the community and learn how we can work together for more community control of our landscape, including Ridgemont and much more.
