Bostwick Timber Access Road
By Chuck Moon

Does this mean that the trees around Bostwick Lake are going
to clear cut? This is prime hunting and fishing grounds, not
to mention a great place to hike into and relax. Do I want to
go ice skating in a clear cut, not to mention crabing in a silted
bay. Where are the plans or did I miss something. I am not against
logging but there are places more suitable than our Rec areas.
Hope I read the article wrong and if so I apologize.

a state timber sale currently being negotiated with Pacific Log
and Lumber. Work on the road is being funded through Governor
