Impact of a Logging Road and Helicopter Landing on Wildlife Habitat near Jones Lake

On September 27, 1999, the Forest Practices Board received a complaint from the Chilliwack Field Naturalists (the complainant). The complainant said that a logging road and a helicopter landing beside Jones Lake would affect mountain beaver and grizzly bear habitat. The Board decided to investigate whether it was reasonable for the Ministry of Forests district manager to approve the road and landing, considering the concerns about impacts on wildlife habitat.
