Good news for Arrowsmith Trail

At the last West Island Woodlands Advisory Group meeting, Island Timberlands announced that they have changed their plans to put logging roads over portions of the Old Arrowsmith Trail.

I would like to acknowledge Island Timberlands and commend them on this decision.

It shows that they are willing to listen to and work with the local community.

Due to two round table discussions, that Island Timberlands hosted, with various stakeholders such as the Regional District of Nanaimo, Mt. Arrowsmith Biosphere Reserve Foundation, Alpine Club of Canada, Federation of Mountain Clubs of B.C. and especially the local Alberni Valley Outdoor Club, a workable solution was found.

Communication, rather confrontation was the theme across the table and I would like to thank all of the people that participated in this process.
