The following three projects were conducted in British Columbia in 1998. Eddie Bauer sponsored all three projects.
1. Mennonite Ecoworks- 33,256 trees were planted for salmon habitat restoration and park beautification projects. For salmon habitat restoration native plants were planted on riparian areas of public and private land in the Abbotsford area. These plants will restore natural shade and protect against erosion in order to create suitable salmon habitat. For park beautification conifers were planted campgrounds in the Fraser Valley. These trees will regenerate native coastal conifer populations in BC parks, encourage plant diversity and will create visual barriers between campsites to enhance privacy for campers. Trees were planted by Ecoworks youth workcrews and volunteers from Gap and Sumas Mental Health Society.
2. Community Riparian Nursery- The riparian nursery is a facility that provides stock for community projects and for restoring watersheds and streams in the Lower Mainland. The nursery helped to restore the Little Campbell River, which is a major salmon stream. 16,900 seedings were planted.
3. Manning Park II- In the fall 37,415 trees were planted in a continuation of the Manning Park project that started in the spring. (See Manning Park-British Columbia for more details.) Trees were planted at campsites and along road banks.
This project was supported by our corporate partner, the Alcoa Foundation.
