Powerhouse Foreshore Restoration Project Maintenance Program
This project’s goals are to: 1) remove invasive plant species that threaten the continued success of the restoration work that has taken place to-date, 2) develop a management plan for encroaching sage stands, and thin the stands if research confirms this strategy, and 3) increase density and diversity of native shrubs. An added benefit to the restoration works and elimination of invasive species is the increase in plants that have high St’at’imc food, medicinal, and cultural values. In conjunction with our outreach work, ethnobotany is seeing an increased interest and people have been harvesting berries, Indian Hemp, Giant Wildrye and Cottonwood Mushrooms from the site.
