Here's another opportunity to participate in an HCTF-funded restoration project. The BCIT Rivers Institute has organized a volunteer planting day at Seymour River Estuary on Saturday, June 13th.
Located in North Vancouver near the North end of the Iron Worker's Memorial Bridge, the Seymour River Estuary had been severely degraded after a century of exposure to the effects of nearby industrial development. Now, this impressive habitat restoration effort that began as part of the Burrard Inlet Restoration Pilot Program is in its final stages, and BCIT is looking for volunteers who want to assist in the completion of what has been a truly collaborative project.
Partners contributing to the Seymour River Estuary Restoration Project include the Habitat Conservation Trust Foundation, Metro Vancouver, Tsleil-Waututh First Nation, Government of Canada Recreational Fisheries Conservation Partnerships Program, District of North Vancouver, Seymour Salmonid Society, Pacific Salmon Foundation, and the BCIT Rivers Institute.
