CKISS Kicks off Multi-Year Restoration Project in 2022.

In the fall of 2022, CKISS kicked off the multi-year ‘Communities Protect Freshwater Together: Riparian Restoration in the Kootenay Region’ project. The overarching objective of this project is to engage and inspire the local community to help protect freshwater quality through the restoration of critical waterbodies and adjacent riparian habitat within three sites in the Central Kootenay region. The three restoration sites are the Bonanza Biodiversity Corridor in the Slocan Valley, Jubilee Wetland in Rossland, and a wetland in Harrop’s Sunshine Bay Regional Park.
