Land Management Department

The McLeod Lake Indian Band has 49,536 acres of reserve land, plus some fee simple properties which are at: Summit Lake (56 ha. and the Mackenzie Junction (43 ha.) that we are managing.  Land Management in conjunction with the Economic Development department must try to utilize these lands in an environmental sustainable way and generate an income with them.  The reserve land we have is mostly used by forestry.  In the future the Band would like to have other uses of the land; such as having cabins and using them to exercise our traditional activities such as hunting, fishing, trapping, berry picking and gathering.  Other ideas would be to create eco-tourism opportunities.  What would you, as our Tse’Khene people like to see with our land management?  Let us know!

Good Day Everyone,

Attached are the Fish Capture and Collection sheets from Randy Baker of Azimuth Consulting Group.  Randy Baker has just completed the first year of the Williston Lake Reservoir mercury concentration.  They are continuing with the study and the Fish SOP Capture and Creel Sheets attached show the method for sample testing.  There is room in the NRC freezer (downstairs) that is clearly marked for Fish Samples.  The sample bags are available at the front desk.  I will have a few in my jeep for whenever I see people fishing in our area, along with instructions.  If you want me to grab a few for you specifically, let me know and I will keep them in my jeep for you.  Randy noted to follow the fillet style sample method which starts on page 4.  He also wants to know about fish consumption patterns from the Williston Lake Reservoir and surrounding lakes that it feeds into.  If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Randy Baker as noted on the sheets.
