An area of particular concern in the current draft is the plan to continue to allow heli-skiing within the park, in the same area as the new proposed hut system. Comment while you still can.
Description

PLEASE ACT NOW: JANUARY 10, 2013 IS THE LAST DAY TO COMMENT

The BCMC is concerned that the Garibaldi Park Management Plan Draft Amendments will entrench heli-skiing in Garibaldi Park and will consider heli-skiing in the placement of huts on the Spearhead Traverse.

If you share these concerns and want to make a difference, please follow these three steps:

Step 1: Highlight (select) the text below, right click and select ”copy”

  • Heli-skiing should be phased out of Garibaldi Park
  • Heli-skiing does not add value for other Park users
  • Huts sites should be selected to maximize safety of users and minimize environmental impact; sites should not be chosen to mitigate conflict between heli-skiing and other Park users


Step 2: Click on the link below and scroll down to Section 6.2.5 (b)

http://www.env.gov.bc.ca/bcparks/planning/mgmtplns/garibaldi/garibaldi_mp_amend_comments.html

Step 3: Right click in the box for section 6.2.5 (b) and click on “paste”


Thank you for taking the time to act on this important issue. The Park Master Plan may not be amended again for 20 or more years, so this is the time to speak-up.
