KAMLOOPS – The province is looking for public input on the Lac du Bois Grasslands after adding more than 2,800 ha of land to the protected area earlier this year.
A management plan, developed in 2004, now requires more detailed direction for the special feature area portion of the protected area. With more than 15,200 hectares of land, the park includes a wide range of grassland elevations, dry forests, the Thompson River delta and the Tranquille River canyon as well as bighorn sheep, mule deer and species at risk.
The public input session will end Aug. 15 and then in the fall the final plan will be made available for public review prior to the final approval over the winter months. Input can be provided by online comment form, email, mail or fax.
This is not the first time the public was given a chance to provide input on the Lac du Bois grasslands. Last spring views were sought on the proposed additions.
