Large, multi-year projects focus on the environment

The Columbia Basin offers spectacular landscapes that are important to humans and critical to the flora and fauna that live in them. Ecosystem resilience is a priority of people in the Basin, and therefore the Trust. Since 2017, with Trust support, a range of groups have implemented large-scale, long-term, on-the-ground projects to maintain and improve ecological health and native biodiversity in a variety of ecosystems (like in the Bonanza Biodiversity Corridor).

“This five-year project is the largest and most ambitious recovery project to date outside of the national parks.”
