Restoration Partnership with Fort Nelson First Nation

Restoration Partnership with Fort Nelson First Nation

We’re proud to be partnering with Fort Nelson First Nation (FNFN) to restore former oil and gas sites. With funding from the BC Oil and Gas Research and Innovation Society, we're working with FNFN to restore borrow pits in the Clarke Lake area and other former industry sites, using ecologically suitable and culturally appropriate restoration techniques.

Field sampling and site specific prescriptions began during the summer of 2018. Earth work followed in the early fall, completed by the FNFN’s contractor and employees. Native plant seeds collected during the early fall were provided to a local nursery in preparation for spring 2019 planting.

Watch the video below to see the progress being made, and read this news release for more information.
