EVENT CANCELLED! Will be rescheduled in June.
Ecosystem Restoration is internationally defined as the process of assisting with the recovery of an ecosystem that has been degraded, damaged or destroyed by re-establishing its structural characteristics, species composition and ecological processes (Executive Summary, Ecosystem Restoration Strategic Plan, 2009).
Amanda Weber-Roy (BC Parks Conservation Specialist) will lead us through the 138 hectare tree removal project conducted this winter at Premier Lake Park as part of the Premier Lake Park Ecosystem Restoration project. This was very large scale for BC Parks and had many partners, stakeholders and much opposition.
