Petition Against the Destruction of Nesslin Lake

0 have signed. Let’s get to 35,000!

The forest in the Nesslin Lake area is slated for logging as early as September of this year. If this goes forward, your once majestic drive to Nesslin Lake will be replaced with a clear view of the destruction. But we’re not just worried about your view: clear-cutting will have a devastating impact on tourism, traditional and recreational land-use, and the untapped economic potential of this area for decades.

A big thank you in advance for your help – our goal is to gather 5,000 signatures. We will be sure to keep you updated on our progress!


We, the undersigned residents of the Province of Saskatchewan, wish to bring to your attention the following: Nesslin Lake, Ness Lake and Zig Zag Bay Campgrounds bring thousands of tourists to the area annually.It is also the prime recreational area for the residents of Big River and surrounding area

The Ness Creek Site brings thousands of tourists to the area through its numerous events and activities,resulting in an additional 25,000 visitor days annually

Portions of the forest in the Nesslin Lake area are slated for logging as early as September 2020 which will negatively impact tourism,traditional and recreational use and its untapped economic potential

A moratorium on logging in this area is critical as, if this logging proceeds, it will cause irreparable harm to the economic potential of the area for decades

Local area residents and businesses need more time to ensure a more sustainable economic plan is put in place
