Work Schedule Released for Whiskey Jack Forest

A large section of the Whiskey Jack Forest north of Kenora will be off-limits to logging activity this summer.

The Annual work schedule has been released and an Individual Environmental Assessment will prevent work from taking place in the Grassy Narrows Traditional Land Use Territory.

District manager with the Ministry of Natural Resource Deb Weedon says they hope to begin work in the area within four months time.

In the interim Weedon says forest management activities are taking place in lands outside of the IEA guidelines.
