Forest company extends access deal with hunters, anglers

Mosaic Forest Management, one of the largest private landowners and managers of Crown tenures on Vancouver Island, has renewed an agreement with the Victoria Fish and Game Protective Association for access into the back country on Southern Vancouver Island.

It extends an agreement struck in 2016 and allows licensed and insured members of the club, and of the B.C. Wildlife Federation, permission to use Mosaic’s private forest lands to fish and hunt on weekends and holidays during set times in designated locations.

Access points for hunters and anglers are at the Butler and Kapoor main line logging road gates, using an access card.

Jim Sprang of the Victoria Fish and Game Protective Association said the partnership with Mosaic provides an excellent opportunity for club members.

“Accessing the great outdoors in a responsible way that conserves fish and wildlife as well as their habitat is part of the club’s conservation mission,” he said. “This renewed access agreement with Mosaic is an important part of being able to fulfill that mission.”

Mosaic president and CEO Jeff Zweig called the club a responsible group that shares the company’s social, economic and environmental values in the working forest.

Mosaic Forest Management is the timberlands manager for TimberWest and Island Timberlands.
