In a nutshell: why we need to protect lands on the west side of Sandy Lake

We already have ~1000 acres protected, most of it on the east side of Sandy Lake. So why did Walter Regan ask at the Dec 6, 2018 presentation:  “Why do we need those lands on the west side?” ( I am pretty sure Walter knew the answer.)

The following slides/maps explain it all “in a nutshell”:

A couple of related questions:

(i) OK, but what about the clearcuts of the West Side – Isn’t it already too late?

(ii) OK, but with some development already in place at the upper part of the corridor, isn’t it already too late?

My answers to both questions: NO. I will explain in subsequent posts.

I should have added “The Big Picture”. Here it is:

These slides are taken from or modified from slides that were in my presentation to the SRA on Dec 6, 2018.
