• Briefing - conservation forest

    100_5789   Dear NBEN members and associates,

    The NBEN is organizing a briefing with the Department of Natural Resources for member and associate groups. The goal of the briefing will be to fully understand the proposed changes for the 2012-2017 Crown lands management plans.  These changes will reduce the existing level of conservation forest (30.4%) to either 23% or 25%.  The new level of conservation forest, slated to begin in 2012, was a decision taken by the last government, but the current government is considering whether to proceed with these changes or not.  There is strong opposition to the changes as the conservation forest includes stream buffer zones, deer wintering areas and old growth forest habitat.

    The briefing will take place on Tuesday, May 10, 9-11 a.m. in Fredericton. Mike Sullivan and Steve Gordon will represent the Department of Natural Resources.  If you are interested in participating, please advise the NBEN by Thursday, May 5.  Thank you, Mary Ann
