In collaboration with the Tk’emlups Indian Band, the BC Wildlife Federation is hosting a four-day wetlands restoration workshop in Kamloops BC, from September 15-18, 2011.
Participants will learn about habitat enhancement for wetland and grassland species, including how to:
- Restore groundwater wetlands
- Identify and remove invasive plants
- Control soil erosion
- Select and plant native species
- Monitor groundwater levels
This project is recommended for individuals, groups, volunteers, first nations, government employees or others wishing to restore a wetland or who are involved in similar projects and programs.
Register at www.bcwf.bc.ca.
The BC Wildlife Federation recognizes the Habitat Conservation Trust Foundation and anglers, hunters, trappers and guides who contribute to the Trust, for making a significant financial contribution to support the Restoration Workshop. Without such support, this project would not have been possible.
