  1. Would you be able to tell me if Nadira area is within IT lands or if it is crown land. Thanks

    1. Thank you for the inquiry. Nadira area is on Crown land.

  2. I noticed that the statement regarding the use of ATVs etc. has changed to "unless authorized by Island Timberlands". Was just wondering how a person might apply for authorization for using ATVs for hunting purposes only. Thanks

    1. Hello and thank you for your inquiry. At this time, ATV access for the public is not authorized. We have been conducting pilots with local clubs to assess options going forward. During those pilot periods there were mechanisms in place for attaining authorization.

  3. Is there any access to dimple Lake?

    1. Thanks for inquiring. We do not own any land around Dimple Lake.
