Residents of the Crowsnest Pass were given an opportunity to see where Spray Lakes Saw Mills will be harvesting over the next months.

The logging company held an open house on Thursday, May 2nd to give people the chance to ask any questions and see the areas that will be harvested.

Ed Kulcsar, VP of Woodlands for Spray Lakes Saw Mills, says it’s an important tool to keep the public informed.

“We hold open houses annually in Cochrane and the Crowsnest Pass. It's an opportunity for people to come out and see where we are going to be harvesting over the next year. It gives them an opportunity to look at the maps, if they know of any sites or unique areas or that type of thing that are of interest to them, it's an opportunity for them to mark them on the map and have those discussions with our planners and operation guys.”

Kulcsar says having the maps at these open houses are useful because it just brings awareness to those areas.

“Specifically for this year it lets them know where we're going to be so if they are going to be in the area using the area at least they know we're there as well. They can be then aware from a safety perspective that there are ongoing operations in the area.”

Kulcsar added that people can also make them aware of things like trails and other pathways they may not be aware of.

This year, Kulcsar says there is a number of areas lined up including two main areas.

“There are two primary areas that we will be operating this year in what's called the C5 Force Management Unit. One is West Chain Lakes and the other is Wintering Creek.”

The harvesting season will begin in July and continue until March of 2020 in these areas.
