In August, Phase I of Hansard Creek Stream Restoration project was completed. The project focused on the restoration of fish passage on an existing major forest road crossing on Hansard Creek (i.e. construction of a fish weir), and rehabilitation of fish habitat on a 200-metre-long stream reach below the crossing.
Children from the YMCA Day Camp play “chicken” with the sprinkler system at UNBC’s Enhanced Forestry Lab while learning about growing trees in nurseries. ALRF seedlings provide a great learning opportunity indoors and out!
Black spruce seedlings in UNBC’s Enhanced Forestry Lab grow vigourously in the greenhouse. After two weeks they are about 2 cm high and changing daily. Each plug was planted with two seeds and shortly after this picture was taken, the greenhouse curators dilgently thinned thousands of trees, leaving the healthiest and strongest to keep growing.
