Grey Sauble and Saugeen Valley properties remain closed

Bells Lake

Grey Sauble and Saugeen Valley properties remain closed but some are scheduled to open soon.

Grey Sauble Conservation Authority (GSCA) and Saugeen Valley Conservation Authority (SVCA) would like to clarify that their properties and trails remain closed at this time. There has been some confusion surrounding the recent announcement from the Provincial Government stating that Provincial Parks and Conservation Reserves will begin opening today (May 11, 2020). This announcement applies to Crown Land only and not GSCA owned properties.

GSCA announced that while it appreciates the response from the public highlighting just how important the properties and trails are and would like to ensure everyone that a plan is being developed to open some GSCA lands soon. GSCA staff are currently working with applicable agencies to establish a strategy for re-opening some GSCA properties that will continue to support the health and safety of property users, staff, and the community.

Similarly, SVCA has clarified that while they wanted to encourage people to be outdoors and to enjoy nature, they are also worried about the risk of transmitting the virus in public spaces. They will notify the public as soon as conditions change.

Please check for updates on GSCA’s Facebook page and website.

At South Grey News, we endeavour to bring you truthful up-to-date local community news in a quick and easy-to-digest format that’s free of political bias. We believe this service is more important today than ever before, as social media has given rise to misinformation, largely unchecked by big corporations who put profits ahead of their responsibilities.

South Grey News does not have the resources of a big corporation. We are a small, locally owned-and-operated organization. Research, analysis and physical attendance at public meetings and community events requires considerable effort. But contributions from readers and advertisers, however big or small, go a long way to helping us deliver positive, open and honest journalism for this community.

Please consider supporting South Grey News with a modest donation and let us know that our efforts are appreciated. Thank you.
