Three Revelstoke projects will receive funding from the Fish & Wildlife Compensation Program this year.

Revelstoke Caribou Rearing in the Wild has been awarded $70,000 for its maternity pen project.

— The Revelstoke Rod & Gun Club will receive $17,768.24 to restore the kokanee spawning channel at Bridge Creek.

— Kingbird Biological Consultants was awarded $2,550 to restore native vegetation in a riparian area.

As well, several area programs will continue to receive funding, including the Arrow Lakes nutrient restoration program, the Hill Creek spawning channel and the Columbia River white sturgeon recover project.

The FWCP approved about $5.6 million in funding for 53 different projects in the Columbia Basin this year.

“This year we continue to fund large projects, such as the successful nutrient restoration programs in Kootenay Lake and Arrow Lakes Reservoir, and much smaller community-based ones such as riparian restoration monitoring in the wetlands near Revelstoke,” said FWCP-Columbia Board public representative Grant Trower. “Regardless of the project size, they all align with our strategic action plans.”
