Monashee park plan unveiled

The public is invited to learn about the plan for the future of Monashee Provincial Park.

The park’s draft management plan will be the topic of discussion at public information sessions Jan. 29 at the Cherryville Community Hall and Jan. 30 at the Vernon Prestige Inn. Both sessions run from 4 to 7 p.m.

The park, which covers 22,722 hectares, celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2012. During that celebration, planning and operations staff gathered information on management issues and concerns raised by the public.

“This is a place where Cherryville residents can nurture nature nearby,” said Hank Cameron, Cherry Ridge Management Committee president.

“I am certain we will have a good turnout at Cherryville hall.”

The plan, which replaces the 1993 plan, is to help guide management of the park by:

n articulating the key features and values of the park,

n identifying the types and levels of management activities,

n determining appropriate levels of use and development,

n establishing a long-term vision and management objectives to be met,

– responding to current and predicted future threats and opportunities.
