We now have online questionnaires posted.  Please see our website below to see the questionnaire as well as more information about our program, scroll down the page to find the link to the Questionnaire for the proposed naming of this feature - please fill it out if you have the time, or share with people who know the area well

Please forward the questionnaire link to other individuals or groups who have knowledge of the feature in this area and may be interested in the naming of this feature. We hope to receive as much input as possible from local residents so that the Board has as much objective information as possible for making their decision and subsequent recommendation to the Minister of Natural Resources and Forestry. If a hard copy of the questionnaire is desired, please print out a copy from the website.
