Revised Cottagers Handbook

Posted on: March 25, 2014  |   ,

The Cottagers Handbook, produced by Manitoba Conservation, outlines information, regulations and guidelines affecting cottagers in Manitoba’s provincial parks.  The Handbook is currently under revision.  The Board of Directors of the Whiteshell Cottagers Association has reviewed a draft copy of the new Handbook and provided Manitoba Conservation with its comments and concerns.  While the WCA endorses such regulation to protect the environment and minimize conflicts, it remains concerned that the Manitoba government has taken the position that none of these regulations apply to other user groups and that no such regulations are being developed.  The majority of human activity in our Park remains poorly regulated.

Message from our Partners at Manitoba Parks that they asked us to share on yesterdays fire (fire has been contained)

"and crews are on site ensuring it is put out.... the fire did burn part of the Falcon Creek Hiking Trail and we have closed it until our crews have had time to assess any damage or hazards and to ensure it is safe for the public. We hope to have it re-opened as soon as possible and will inform you when it is."
