BE IT RESOLVED that SARM again lobby the Ministry of Environment to reinstate the Beaver Management in Provincial Parks Program in the 2020-21 budget to help reduce beaver overpopulation in provincial parks and the resulting financial burden on the surrounding rural municipalities incurred due to beaver damage.
