Get some info if you are heading up there to winter camp, just make sure you don't run into trouble.

Recently, two members of our Board of Directors were forced to cancel or alter winter camping plans due to access issues. @sadielady456 encountered clear-cuts in an area she had camped before with her family and was left standing on the road forced to turn back home. @tear_knee ended up camped between the highway and the pipeline, unable to head deeper into the backcountry.
Many people don't realize how fragmented the Temagami wilderness is becoming. Only 15% of the total area is protected by parks and conservation reserves. Your $25 membership goes directly towards protecting, promoting, and preserving the Temagami wilderness area. Logging clear-cuts, road development, pipeline expansion and mining are destroying the place we love most

On another note very happy to see Tearknee involved! :clap:
I wish more would become active in the areas they love.

(With my present back issues I am living vicariously through others trip reports! hope to get out mid Feb. in New Brunswick. So lets see a few more reports here :wink: )

Choosing to save a river is more often an act of passion than of careful calculation. You make the choice because the river has touched your life in an intimate and irreversible way, because you are unwilling to accept its loss. — (David Bolling, Ho
