CBT out with a new 10 million dollar Ecosystem Enhancement Program

The CBT has announced a big funding injection for basin ecosystems.

They have a new 5 year, 10 million dollar Ecosystem Enhancement Program.

The goal is to help maintain and improve ecological health and native biodiversity in a variety of ecosystems, from wetlands, and fish habitat to forests.

This new initiative is different than their environmental Grants Program, because it will carry out large scale on the ground projects with significant benefits.

The Trust will identify projects focused on enhancement, restoration and conservation by seeking input from community groups, First Nations representatives and government experts, and reviewing existing regional plans and research.
