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.
Last Friday, a group of volunteers from the community of Aleza Lake built steps to the entrance of the South Knolls Trail, and prepared a great lunch for the group after our work was done. Many thanks to Lloyd, Jerry, Ann and Alva for donating their time, ideas and building materials to the project! The wood chips, used for surfacing, were provided by a brushing crew from the PG Youth Custody Services Forestry Program working along the Upper Fraser Road near Giscome.
ALRF is holding several trail work bees in August and September, every second Friday. If you are interested in helping out, please contact us!
The Council of Forest Industries Education Program will be holding their annual Natural Resources Management Camp for School District 57 senior high school students, hosted at ALRF on May 19th and 20th this year. After learning about the art, science and rewarding careers in natural resources, the students will tackle the Amazing NRM Challenge where teams will be asked to complete physically and mentally demanding activities – and have lots of fun doing it!
