Camping fees required in Sturgeon River expansion

Park wardens now require overnight-camping permits in the 4,072-hectare addition to the southern end of the Sturgeon River Waterway Park.

The expansion, south of Lower Goose Falls to the mouth of the Chiniguchi River, was regulated April, 2005. Its creation was part of the 1999 park system expansion announced by then-Premier Mike Harris, under Ontario's Living Legacy Land Use Strategy. (Temagami River and Chiniguchi River parks were also part of the initiative.)

While it was unregulated, there was no enforcement of park rules.

Temiskaming hiking book expanded

The new heftier edition of the bible to hiking in the Temiskaming region has been dramatically expanded from 60 day trips to 106.

A bonus in Discovering Wild Temiskaming is the guide to the new 70-kilometre Ottawa-Temiskaming Highland Trail that stretches from Latchford to Grand Campment Bay on Lake Timiskaming. This is not a day hike though, if attempted in one trip, but a backpacking trek.

Co-author Vicky Muir is excited because this edition is close to her dream work. "It has a better layout, better maps and color photos."

The 2002 edition went out of print when it sold out.

The book launch will be held at Chat Noir Books in New Liskeard, June 24 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Authors Vicky and Murray Muir are donating their proceeds to hiking group Nastawgan Trails.

The book is available at Temagami Outfitting (Temagami), Highway Book Shop (Cobalt) and Chat Noir Books (New Liskeard).
