The Forests of Alberta’s Southern Eastern Slopes: Forest or Forestry?

August 16, 2010

August 2010 update of AWA’s position paper.

“The forests of Alberta’s Southern Eastern Slopes are a vital resource for Albertans. They provide clean water for communities across Alberta and Saskatchewan and into Manitoba, recreation opportunities for southern Alberta’s burgeoning population, and habitat for a wide range of fish and wildlife species…

The forests in southern Alberta are managed principally to provide a sustained yield of timber for the forestry industry. Other functions of healthy forests – including watershed and environmental services, recreational opportunities, and wildlife habitat – are managed as secondary concerns…”

It is my belief that Non-profit organizations like the Alberta Wilderness Association provide a clear framework that creates opportunities for Albertans to actively participate in the protection of their provinces resources.
