Access Management in Our Headwaters and Beyond
Bringing the diverse skill sets of four organizations can create impact at local and provincial levels. Starting with a demonstration site in the Dutch Creek watershed, the project will engage local recreational users in conversations about recreation management and undertake environmental restoration activities in the watershed. This pilot project will take place concurrently with continued legal and policy research and the creation of four stakeholder engagement workshops and a provincial framework for access management. Access management is a wicked problem and both site-specific and provincial approaches are needed to tackle it. Although the focus is on environmental health, management of the headwaters has also become a divisive social issue. One of the project goals is to help people see how our economic, social, cultural, and environmental needs, are connected.
