The Back 40 – 2021 Resource Management Plan (RMP) Renewal Process

The RMP is a guiding document for the care and management of The Back 40 and is reviewed every 5 years, the current RMP expires fall 2021. Here is a copy of the Draft 2021 RMP, the current (2016) RMP and a letter by the GWTA Chairman which helps to explain how we got here. These documents will also be posted on the MD Bighorn website

Please don’t hesitate to contact the GWTA if you have any questions or concerns. The Draft 2021 RMP will be presented at GWTA’s 2021 AGM for members approval. 

More information about the Back 40 and the GWTA is available under the Community Page.
