Restoring riparian habitat in the Puntledge River Watershed

A building covering 233 m2 was demolished and 117 m2 of concrete was removed from the former sawmill site. An updated restoration design was completed, alongside a planting prescription, sub-surface scanning, and soil testing. The site is of cultural and environmental significance to the K’omoks First Nation, and is next to a salmon migration corridor that connects the K’ómoks Estuary to spawning habitats in the Puntledge and Tsolum River watersheds.
