Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 2, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 10 LETHBRIDQE HERALD Tuesday, October 2, 1973 STILL SELLING FOR LESS! STERN'S CUT-RATE FURNITURE 314 3rd Streets. Phone 327-30Z4 Land clearing operations A lack of pasture land in the foothills region of Southern Alberta has prompted many ranchers and farmers to clear native rangeland of brush and scrub trees to make way for grazing crops The above clearing operation is on Pmcher Creek Ranches Ltd south of Pmcher Creek Julien Deshorties, owner of the ranch, has undertaken a major native rangeland rehabilitation program The provincial government had promised producers a grant to reseed native rangeland to tame grass crops but since has had THURSDAY AND FRIDAY TILL 9 P.M. ORLON FUR PILE CAR AND TRUCK SEAT COVERS to arrange for interest-free loans for the program. Mr Deshorties has even started clearing areas nearer the mountains and this has provoked an outburst from area residents that the clearing operation may be causing a possible environmen- tal problem. Many area residents fear the water shed areas may not be protected from large amounts of water runoff due to a lack of brush and trees.
