Whitebark Pine Restoration in the St’at’imc Territory

Whitebark Pine is an endangered keystone species of high elevation ecosystems. The most effective means for Whitebark Pine recovery is through promoting the regeneration of Blister Rust‐resistant seedlings via planting or natural means. This project will directly aid in recovery by planting seedlings grown from potentially rust‐resistant parent trees, collecting additional seeds, and by initiating work to determine how local Clark’s Nutcrackers are utilizing Whitebark Pine forests, and aiding in its recovery.
