In our aim to preserve our wetlands, the Wetlands Workforce program is providing much-needed maintenance to 70 wetland restoration sites across the province. Our work-pods will be deployed with a focus of maintaining and strengthening these wetlands and riparian habitats.
The maintenance work being done includes:
- Removal of Invasive Species, Pest and/or Weeds
- Planting of Native Species
- Installation and Repairing of Protective Fencing
- Waste and Garbage Removal
- Installation of Signage
- Beaver Dam Removal
As the year progresses, we will highlight the projects being completed across the province in our aim to ensure the continued benefit and longevity of these key habitats.
Our crews are providing a little care to BC’s wetlands this year by removing invasive species, cleaning up waste, and maintaining trails.
