Lac du Bois Grasslands Protected Area Management Plan

What was this engagement about?

BC Parks updated the previous draft management plan for the Lac du Bois Grasslands Protected Area due to land additions in early 2013 and to provide more detailed management direction for the Tranquille Special Feature Area portion of the protected area.

Lac du Bois Grasslands encompasses 15,207 ha of valley slopes rising above the City of Kamloops. It includes low to upper elevations of grasslands, dry forests, Thompson River delta, and the spectacular Tranquille River canyon. The protected area provides habitat for bighorn sheep, mule deer and species at risk.

In this stage of public input, BC Parks invited citizens to review and comment on the Lac du Bois Grasslands draft management plan from 2004. After any required changes are made, the draft management plan will be made available for final public review prior to final approval.

How did my contribution make a difference?

Citizens were invited to review the 2004 Lac du Bois Grasslands draft management plan and submit their comments using an online comment form, or by email, mail or fax. By sharing their views, participants helped to guide the protected area management planning process and ensure that the public’s perspectives were heard.
