Happy Fir-iday!

Douglas-fir is native to Vancouver Island but can be found throughout the Continent of North American.

Douglas-fir are not true Fir. While they are part of the Pine Family, along with spruce, pine or Hemlock, Douglas-fir are a species all in their own.

It was recently discovered that these trees have a specialized photosynthetic apparatus that is found in the light harvesting complex genes.

Put in laymens terms... these trees have more light harvesting proteins than other conifer trees and therefore, are able to grow in darker or shadier environments.

What’s happening here!?

Often, when we are creating Environmental Control Plans we run into the need for Erosion Control and Mitigation.

This can be accomplished in a variety of different ways however, the Erosion and Sediment Control Method shown here is via the use of Rip Rap and Erosion Control Blankets.

Rip Rap is a rubble made of a variety of rock types and sizes used to armour embankments and shoreline in order to prevent erosion due to water run off.

Erosion Blankets are fibre rolls used to slow water run off and soil erosion on slopes where vegetation is scarce or non existent.

Would you like to learn more about Erosion Control?

Send us a message, we are always happy to help! 🦅

Understanding Our Environment

Micro Ecosystems

Micro Ecosystems are found within a small space usually only cm’s in size.

The elements that make up these tiny eco systems are very small and require specific, and sometimes extreme conditions to exist and are an integral part of the larger eco system in which it resides.

Amphibians are a delicate species that often rely on emergent vegetation for food, shelter and breeding purposes.

Emergent vegetation grows in shallow areas along shorelines, are rooted under water, in the ground, with stems and leaves rising above the water level.

It is important to leave our shorelines and emergent vegetation as intact as possible to ensure a safe haven for our lil friends. 🐸

Your footprint in the wilderness.

Do you Mountain Bike, Horse Ride or Hike? Have you ever heard of trail braiding? Here’s what you should know...

Trail braiding occurs as alternate lines in the trail. Generally, Trail Braiding will occur around an obstacle like a puddle, steep section, or fallen tree. These “ride arounds” lead to double vegetation in that area, loss of habitat and erosion.

If you see this happening, grab some sticks, logs, and cover up the new line to encourage people to stay on the main trail. Make sure there is still a clear line-of-sight to prevent any injuries due to limited visibility.

Little Steps Make Big Impacts! Stay on trail! 🙌🏼
