Blue Mountain- Birch Cove Lake Regional Park Panel Discussion Tomorrow Night

The Canadian Association of Retired Persons (CARP) is hosting a panel discussion this Tuesday on the struggle to protect a key area for the future greenbelt: Blue Mountain-Birch Cove Lakes Regional Park. The province has designated the area to become park, but the municipality has yet to do its part and acquire the lands. The discussion will be an opportunity to learn about land protection and meet other groups working on these issues.
