Currently there is a timber harvest in back of LaCoute Drive (West side of the lake). This land is privately owned by AV Nackawic. It is not the Crown Land which had been lobbied by the SLCOA for protection. It is understood to be a controlled strip cut (not a clear cut) and that all brooks, streams and buffer areas are to be adhered as per guidelines established by DNR (Department of Natural Resources).
Our President Bill Clark has established a committee which will be monitoring the progress of this cut over the 2016/17 winter. We will post updates to this site as they become available.
Crown Land Usage
Crown lands are managed in the best interest of the people of New Brunswick. The use of Crown land is a privilege for all residents of New Brunswick and is made available for people to use and enjoy. Occasional use of Crown land generally does not require formal authorization from DNR. Some examples of occasional use are: hiking, biking, picnicking, and canoeing. Building structures on Crown Land is not permitted without prior authorization. Failing to do so could result in a fine $1250.00) Always check before you build!
