Conservation in the Context of Climate Change – Restoration in Action
The Kootenay Conservation Program was pleased to bring back the Winter Webinar Series, from January to March. The four-part series focused on the theme of “Conservation in the Context of Climate Change – Restoration in Action.”
WEBINAR #3: Riparian and Wetland Restoration in the Slocan Valley
You can watch the third webinar in the KCP Winter Webinar Series. The Slocan River Streamkeepers have implemented over 40 riparian restoration projects in the Slocan Valley since 2005, restoring the equivalent of 5 km of riverbank. Some of the projects have also included fish habitat enhancement. More recently, the Streamkeepers have also implemented some wetland restoration and enhancement projects. In this webinar, Gregoire Lamoureux, restoration ecologist with Slocan River Streamkeepers, will talk about some of the projects that have been implemented over the years, the importance of good relationship with landowners, the challenges & benefits of the projects and more.
