AWA News Release: Last Stand for Threatened Bull Trout – Logged
December 21, 2012
In Alberta’s secluded Hidden Creek, a rapid-fire “blink and you’ll miss it” logging operation is coming to a swift close. Hidden Creek is the most important spawning grounds for threatened bull trout in the entire Oldman River system in southern Alberta, and is also home to threatened westslope cutthroat trout. For a paltry $17,000 of timber royalties, this important refuge is now jeopardized by a new road and clear cuts that will alter its water quality and quantity.
