Hikers Rally To Protect Castle Special Place

 
 

Lethbridge: Hikers set out bright and early on September 15th for the summit of Table Mountain above Beaver Mines.

 

The hike in Castle special place is meant to protest Spray Lake Sawmill's clear-cut logging in the area. Hikers will carry a banner "Protect the Castle" to share their message.

 

"The castle is not only important for wildlife, but for recreation. It's an important recreation area, especially for people in Southern Alberta. It's a watershed for a lot of locations. It's used for business purposes, as well." said President of the Castle-Crown Wilderness Coalition, Gordon Petersen.

 

The hikers are expected to reach the summit at 11:30. The Bert Riggall Environmental Foundation and Castle Crown Wildernes Coalition hope the Government of Alberta's soon-to-be-released draft South Saskatchewan Regional Plan (SSRP) will include the protection of Castle.
