The Kusawa Territorial Park committee wants to hear what people cherish about the place as they plan for its future.
The park is used for hiking, fishing and hunting and also features many cultural and historic sites for First Nations. It was set aside when the Kwanlin Dun and Carcross/Tagish First Nations finished their final agreements.
It’s one of three territorial parks to come out of the final agreements.
“What we’re really wanting right now is for the public to identify information on what specifically is important to them about Kusawa,” Afan Jones, of the committee’s secretariat.
The committee wants to know what kind of changes people have seen in the park over the years and the areas they prefer to visit.
Kusuwa Park surrounds the 60-kilometre-long Kusuwa Lake. It’s accessible from a 25-kilometre road off the Alaska Highway in South western Yukon.
“People do a variety of things from that road, whether its canoeing down the Takhini River or hunting and fishing,” said Jones.
People can put provide input on a website, kusawapark.ca, he said. (James Munson)
