Western Crown Land - Taking care of the environment and yourself!

When going onto the former Bowater lands – in St. Margarets, Rossignol, and Medway – remember:

  • Stay on the roadbeds – road maintenance is expensive!
  • Not all the roads are open – keep out of areas that are posted as sensitive habitats.
  • Do not litter – pick up after yourself!
  • The spring is high fires season - report any wildfire.
  • Treat this wonderful resource with respect so it will last for future generations.
  • Cell phone coverage is limited – be prepared!
  • Make sure someone knows where you are – safety is your responsibility.
  • Follow OHV safety rules.
  • Some roads are still wet and vehicles can get stuck – please be careful.
  • The open road network contains 1,700 km of forest roads. It is easy to get lost. Please download maps!
  • Maps are available online and in local DNR offices
  • Help protect our natural resources.
    Report fires, poachers and offences.
