Short Description of Activity
Roundtable meeting was held at Sherwood Park with masks and social distancing. Discussion on the increased use of public lands during the pandemic and the negative impacts of that use. We reviewed suggestions for increasing monitoring and yet didn’t come up with a plan of action.
Wildlife advocates talked about upcoming trail applications, SWA proposed changes, and monitoring being done.
High level of concern was evident by all Roundtable members, but no playoff action.
Wildlife discussions are valuable because of the varying opinions and learning from each other.
