Beaver Wetland Project

In May 2016, Mrs. Purdy’s grade 4 class and Mrs. Kroeker’s grade 8 class joined forces with the Elk River Alliance, Elk Valley Wildsight, and the East Kootenay Invasive Species Council. Their missions? To help restore the Beaver Wetland in Sparwood! Everyone worked very hard to map the wetland, identify and pull invasive plant species, plant native vegetation in its place, and examine the benthic invertebrate population of the wetland. You can check out the video that the kids made and see for yourself all of the hard work they put in! Good work everyone! 


A big thanks to the kids, and also to our funders:

BC Wildlife Federation

Environment Canada 

District of Sparwood

Sparwood Community Futures
