The City of Campbell River is working with the provincial conservation office and the Ministry of Environment to investigate the felling of an active bald eagle nest tree on the morning of Feb. 27.
The Douglas fir tree, which was registered in the Provincial nest tree data base and mapped in the SOCP as an environmentally sensitive development permit area, was cut down in a residential area located on the ridge south of Rockland Road in Campbell River. City staff attended and photographed the site, and neighbours who witnessed the tree being cut volunteered contact information.
