Wetlands Project

The wetlands workshop was a success! It was sponsored by the BC Wildlife Federation and they wrote a blog about it. Check it out:

“Splitrock is looking to identify and classify wetlands in the St’at’imc Territory. For the first year the focus will be on lands within a 15km radius of Lillooet to the south and west – traditional use lands of both the Sekw’el’was and T’it’q’et communities. The areas to be explored include reserve, private and forest lands, as well as urban lands in the town of Lillooet. They reached out to BC Wildlife Federation’s Wetlands Education Program to provide training for their staff in the field of wetland inventory. The BCWF WEP Manager, Neil Fletcher, was unable to provide the training himself and so Ryan Durand of Ecologic (Environmental Consultation Firm) was brought in for the job. Durand, having 17 years in the field, was able to provide a high quality, two-day course for the Splitrock staff.”
