Provincial Native Seed Bank Feasibility Study
Over the next 10 years, the development of natural resources, particularly in Northern BC is set to significantly increase as numerous proposed major mining, oil and gas and hydro projects reach construction stage. With all this proposed development, the demand for native seed is likely to significantly increase. Currently, the capacity of native seed and seedling providers in the province may be unlikely to meet the anticipated demands. Creating a central repository for native seed could aid seed and seedling providers in meeting these demands by providing the means to increase the collection, storage and inventory of native seed. This would provide industry with the resources necessary to help implement best practices in the revegetation of disturbed lands in BC.
As environmental leaders our team has created this project, we are now seeking support from industry, government and others to make this essential project for ecological sustainability a reality.
