Bioengineering Workshop

The Elk River Alliance is excited to announce that we will be partnering with the College of the Rockies and Terra Erosion Control to host a two-day bioengineering workshop on stream side rehabilitation techniques for flood mitigation. This workshop includes outdoor lectures as well as site visits to potential flood mitigation project sites in the Fernie area. It is tailored to government agencies, municipal staff, industry, consultants, environmental NGOs and interested citizens. Pierre Raymond is the President and Owner of Terra Erosion Control Ltd., which is a Kootenay based company that specializes in biotechnical slope stabilization solutions to erosion and sediment control, riparian restoration, stormwater outfall protection, and mining/industrial reclamation.
