The Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry is responsible for the long term health of our forests. The MNRF shares the responsibility for maintaining the forests surrounding our lakes with Mazinaw-Lanark Forest Inc. (MLFI). Every 10 years the two groups develop a plan for forest management. The public is invited to participate at various stages throughout the planning process.
There are 5 stages in the development of a Forest Management Plan. We are currently in Stage 4, Review of Draft FMP. The current plan has been extended until the end of June.
