The Friends of Stillwater Bluffs are working towards protecting this property from development or logging. It is currently owned by Island Timberlands. In 2012 Island Timberlands had intentions to begin laying out roads and timber harvesting blocks on the property. FOSBA lobbied strongly to secure itself some time to find a way to protect the property.
plus people came out to Stillwater Bluffs and hiked in support of this
area becoming a regional park. Ken Wu, TJ Watt and Chris from the
Ancient Forest Alliance walked with us. Friends of Stillwater Bluffs and
the Ancient Forest Alliance are working together to ask Island
Timberlands to lay off contentious lands for now so that these lands can
be purchased and protected. Also for the Provincial
Government to pony up some money as part of a Parks Acquisition Fund so
that these lands can be held protected for years to come. Thank you
all for coming out.
If you missed the hike but still would love
to support this campaign it's easy. Call or write to the Regional
District and thank them for starting the negotiations with Island
Timberlands and tell them that there constituency is noticing.
