West Fraser Timber Company Open House + Protest March

Stand up for the Trails with GROW

Join us at the West Fraser Timber Company Open House for public consultation at their location on May 8th 2024 from 3-8 PM to learn more about their plans and voice your concerns.
Note: You don’t have to be there the whole time to show your support. If you could spare even 15 minutes of your time that evening to come by and voice your concerns it would be greatly appreciated. 
Following this event, we will be organizing a protest hike/ride/march on May 9th. We will be meeting at the base of Moose Mountain Road for 6:30 PM to ride, walk, hike, and march up Moose Mountain Road to the 2KM parking lot.
Our goal is to show strength in numbers and illustrate how many people care about the trails by making a video of the event to send a message to the stakeholders that aren’t doing their part to cancel the proposed harvest in 2025/2026. 
Please RSVP to our Facebook Event and mark yourself as “Going” or “Interested” and share the event on your channels to help us gain as much support from people that love these trails as much as we do.

Thanks to all of those that have reached out for their endorsements and continued support!

Introducing: G.R.O.W

Guardians of Recrational Opportunities in Wilderness

As avid trail users, stakeholders, and outdoor enthusiasts we strongly believe that trees and natural forests are an essential part of an authentic outdoor experience. 

We aren’t opposed to logging and have nothing against the industry, but we believe the proposed logging plans of West Fraser Timber Company (formerly Spray Lakes Sawmills or SLS for short) is a short sighted move.

There are a ton of incredible trails that have been build through countless hours of sweat equity from volunteers, fundraising, government collaboration and more. 

For these trails to be logged would significantly alter the experience we have enjoying them and they wouldn’t be the same during our lifetime. 

This is our first update of many, please stay tuned for more information.
