Bringing Wetlands Back

The Salt Spring Island Conservancy (SSIC) shared this great video of the habitat restoration work happening on their recent conservation land acquisition, Blackburn Lake. In the video, wetland restoration expert Tom Biebighauser talks about the process of unearthing wetlands buried under a metre and a half of soil, and the dedication of the many volunteers working to restore the former golf course to a more natural state. You can read more about how HCTF grants are helping to make this restoration project a success in this post.
