Who We Are
The B.C. Wildlife Federation’s Wetlands Workforce project began as a collaboration with conservation organizations and First Nations across British Columbia. From its inception, the keystone of the Wetlands Workforce project has been engagement with First Nations and Indigenous-led organizations.
The BCWF is proud to protect watersheds across British Columbia, and provide on-the-ground restoration, monitoring, maintenance alongside education to better our world for generations to come. Our programs and projects span the Province of BC; across many First Nations communities’ traditional, ancestral, unceded and contemporary territories. The Wetlands Workforce deploys work-pods across British Columbia aiming to improve riparian area habitat, monitor the effectiveness of wetland restoration sites, advance collaborative restoration projects with First Nations and communities, provide employment opportunities, and to support Province-wide monitoring initiatives that will improve wetland management.
We’d like to thank the First Nations communities we worked with to date for their collaboration, hospitality, and dedication to protecting watersheds.
