The CMI Annual Researchers’ Meeting for 2002 was held in Revelstoke at the Hillcrest Hotel. The meeting included evening presentations on the evening of April 22nd, and continued with more presentations then a field trip on April 23rd .
In addition to the regular mix of CMI member presentations, we heard BC Hydro contractors present on “Benefits of Shoreline Revegetation in the Upper Arrow Reservoir”, a project undertaken as part of BC Hydro’s Strategic Environmental Initiatives Program. The presentations outlined the results of a three-year project to assess the benefits of the seeding program carried out by BC Hydro over the last decade. Study contractors present their key findings, including trends in vegetation growth and productivity in revegetated areas, aquatic productivity (fish and invertebrates), bird use of revegetated areas, recreation in the Upper Arrow Reservoir, and ecological modelling of vegetation growth and productivity.
The field trip was to Drimmie Creek, about 15 km south of Revelstoke in the Upper Arrow Lakes drawdown zone. About 20 meeting participants went on-site with the BC Hydro contractors who had assessed the ecological benefits of BC Hydro’s seeding program.
The CMI is grateful to BC Hydro for their financial and in-kind support of this meeting.
