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 Ghost Waiparous recreation lease area and trail system, known as the Back 40, is provided for the enjoyment of all, through a partnership between the Municipal District of Bighorn (Municipal District), the Summer Village of Waiparous (SVW) and the Ghost-Waiparous Trails Association (GWTA) under an agreement with the Government of Alberta, Environment and Parks. These facilities are maintained by community volunteers following the Back 40 Resource Management Plan.
FireSmart planning has been undertaken by the partners and will be moving forward under the guidance of the Back 40 Firesmart Committee (a GWTA working committee with members from Benchlands, Ghost, SVW and Forestry) as funding opportunities arise with community information and consultation occurring at each operational planning step.
