Advancing wetland stewardship and restoration in the Kootenays

The BC Wildlife Federation will work with partners to restore 6.43 hectares of wetland habitat at various sites. Additional works will develop a wetland restoration design for King George VI Provincial Park (Rossland); deliver a Map-our-Marshes Workshop (Salmo) to build capacity among ATV-users to become environmental ambassadors; provide hands-on training to workshop participants at a restoration workshop; and training for Lower Kootenay Band (Yaqan Nukiy) resource technicians to implement additional wetland projects in their traditional territory.
