Protect Haro Woods

Action Alert

April 21, 2010

Haro Woods is a 9 hectare urban forest in the municipality of Saanich, near the University of Victoria. In this second-growth stand of Douglas firs, western redcedars, shore pine, and arbutus trees are substantial numbers of deer, threatened red-legged frogs, raptors, and owls. It is heavily used as a recreation area by local residents, who have also been lobbying for its protection as a park for several decades. 

Currently the Capital Regional District is interested in locating a new sewage treatment facility on top of the forest. While a sewage treatment facility is vital, it should be located in an already cleared location, not on top of a native ecosystem.


See a map of Haro Woods and more details at: http://www.saveharowoods.ca/save-haro-woods-map.html

Please write a quick letter expressing your concerns that sewage treatment facilities should be located in an already cleared location, not in Haro Woods, to the Mayor of Saanich Frank Leonard and to the Saanich municipal council at:
mayor@saanich.ca
council@saanich.ca
