Well over 50 residents showed up on Sunday, November 18 to show their opposition to plans to log DL Block 1313, also known as the Reed Road Forest. This area, originally designated as a community watershed, was slated for logging by BC Timber Sales (BCTS) in 2013. Public protests and opposition by the SCRD secured a series of delays, but BCTS now says they’ll put it up for auction in January 2019.
