Ganaraska Forest Management Plan Update

The Ganaraska Region Conservation Authority (GRCA) is in the process of updating the Forest Management Plan (FMP) for the Ganaraska Forest. The last FMP was completed in 1998 and provided framework for managing the forest for the next 10 years. The current FMP has a December 31, 2017 sunset date and the new plan must be developed to guide the use and management of the Ganaraska Forest moving forward.

Throughout this process, the GRCA is seeking public input. Your assistance is much appreciated.

Current Ganaraska Forest Management Plan:

Forest Management Plan - Volume 1 of 3
Forest Management Plan - Volume 2 of 3
Forest Management Plan - Volume 3 of 3

Ganaraska Forest Trails Project (Marsh Report) - August 1997
