This fall The Nature Trust of British Columbia has been working with a group of students from the British Columbia Institute of Technology (BCIT), who are beginning a year-long student project at our Harrison-Chehalis property, near Harrison Mills, BC.
The students will be assessing stream channel health through water quality sampling, and inventory of fish, amphibians and vegetation. By examining a series of man-made fish channels, they will help to determine if any modifications need to be made to improve channel function for salmonid and amphibian habitat. Fish and amphibians species are returned back into the water unharmed.
Studies like these are an important part of our mandate to conserve and protect wildlife.
