Very informative article. I lived on Porcupine Creek for a # of years and enjoyed our "wild back yard" good to know that it will still be preserved.

I made a living off this piece of ground for 22 years. Darkwoods was a great employer! The NCC purchase was financed by the Federal Government with my tax dollars. The NCC and politicians promised us “no job loss”, but I lost my job, my lifes work and retirement immediately. If anyone else had acquired the property I would have still had a job, and value from my life’s work. There is no words for how I feel about the purchase.

Here's a novel idea: close the whole area to human usage and development of any kind. Leave the trees and animals be. Make no attempt to manage the area other than to keep people out. Allow what's there to exist for its own sake. Once every 100 years, send someone in, just to see what a truly wild area of the world looks like. And protect that in perpetuity.

If that's really a brook (see previous comment) - than there's no need to catch & release. They're non-native and displace native trout. Catch & keep, all you can! Great article.

You've got a beautiful picture of a trout on page 54 of the Jan/Feb 2011 magazine. Unfortunately the fish is incorrectly identified as a bull trout. It is actually a brook trout with the characteristic red spots with blue halos, pronounced white leading edges on its lower fins and an orange belly. It is also known widely as a speckled trout. It's not a true trout but in fact a member of the char family. The first brookie I ever caught was on the famous Kispiox River in Northern BC. I was young and inexperienced but thankfully let the beauty go as I have with all brookies since caught.

I appreciated learning about this organization and the work they are doing for conservancy of our beautiful Canadian lands. Since I am planning a trip out West this summer, Pluto Darkwoods is on our agenda. Finally, it was nice to see pictures of Cochrane ON since we live in Moonbeam which is an hour away. I enjoy the boreal forests year around.
