Consideration of Harvesting Impacts on Rare Species near Elk Creek

The Chilliwack Field Naturalists asked the Board to investigate the approval of an amendment to a FDP–the Cattermole Timber Company proposed two cutblocks on Elk-Thurston Mountain. The complainant is concerned that public comments about the impact of harvesting on old growth forests and significant rare species were not adequately considered, and information about helicopter drop areas was missing from the amendment.
