Ducks Unlimited Canada Wetland Best Practices Workshop

April 14, 2016

Boreal Workshop

“It was standing room only,” says Smith, Ducks Unlimited Canada’s (DUC) national manager of boreal programs.

DUC hosted the two-day workshop in Edmonton, Alta., in January to promote the sharing of ideas and information about planning and operating practices that regulators, industry and other stakeholders could potentially adopt to effectively manage Canadian boreal forest wetlands and waterfowl habitat. These include practices like building low-impact wetland crossings, and other methods that may conserve and reduce impacts to wetlands.

The 125 workshop participants represented industry, various levels of government, consultants, and not-for-profits hailing from different areas of the boreal from B.C. to Quebec and the Northwest Territories.

Right people, right place, right time
