    A controversial plan to log near Star Creek in southwestern Alberta is taking a major step forward, prompting residents to raise concerns about both the stream — home to the threatened westslope cutthroat — and the landscape around it. In mid-October, a harvest plan was developed to log 168 hectares of forest as part of a research project led by the University of Alberta. It’s the second phase of the Southern Rockies Watershed Project, which started in 2004 and lasted 10 years.
