Hearing In Lethbridge July 28 Group Plans Brief On Wilderness Act Members of the Alberta Wild- erness Association will draft an extensive brief concerning the proposed Alberta Wilderness Areas Act (Bill 106) for hear- ings to be held here July 28. The brief rail be prepared with assistance from Buck Cun- ningham, assistant professor of recreation at the Lethbridge Community College. The AWA will also recom- mend through the Lethbridge Environmental Council that ail council members prepare their own briefs, and attend the hear- ings in force. (The Environmental Council is a co-ordinating group involv- ing about 25 city clubs and as- sociations.) AWA Lethbridge president Dr. Luke Stebbins1, assistant professor of biological sciences at the University of Lethbridge, said he hoped the groups would each analyze Bill 106 and pre- sent a united set of recom- mendations to the government at the hearing. The AWA will also undertake a field trip for members, July 17 to 19, near the West Castle Ski Resort, about 28 miles southwest of Pincher Creek. Overnight hikes will be taken into a logged area about 10 miles south of the resort, and another will travel into the South Castle River region about 20 miles southeast of the re- sort, into the Grizzly Creek and Scarpe Creek districts. Grizzly Creek is the centre of substantial copper exploration at- present, and" Scarpe Creek with a stand of 200-year old trees will soon be logged off. In other business the associa- tion expressed concern about the continued use of the Aka- mina Trail for motorized travel tours. The road fire through the south- ern Rockies near Waterton Lakes, crossing the Waterton Lakes National Park in a short three-quarter mile section. About 30 miles of the road is in British Columbia and so far the B.C. government has re- fused to help finance a good road since it doesn't connect with any other B.C. road. Some co-ordination will be organized between the AWA in Lethbridge and several wilder- ness groups in British Colum- bia who are attempting to stop the road's construction. Other current areas of con- cern to t h e Lethbridge AWA chapter are the whole West Castle watershed and the Cy- press Hills Provincial Park in southeastern Alberta, where oil explorations have been allowed and extensive uranium and coal beds are already mapped. So far the oil test drilling has been unsuccessful, with at least two dry holes but the AWA is concerned about potential damage to the area if its min- erals are too extensively ex- ploited. The AWA also appointed Dr. G. A. Wright as its representa- tive to the Environmental Council, and established a stu- dent rate for memberships. Adult memberships include a annual provincial levy and a local fee; students will be required to pay only the ?1 provincial association fee.
