Sensitive Areas

The sensitive areas map identifies parts of the community that are special, rare or environmentally delicate.  The sensitive areas map combines information on water bodies, steep slopes, vegetation, wildlife and culturally significant areas to highlight parts of the community that should be protected, or only touched very lightly.

Protecting and maintaining sensitive areas is essential to the Community Plan.  These areas are both important to community members today and will be in the future, and provide and idea of some of the limitations for the development in Cowessess.

The sensitive areas maps was created from information gathered from the staff and from discussions at workshop 3 (September 2008).  Community members identified areas of the Reserver that are special, rare, or environmentally delicate.
