The District of Squamish collaborates with local community groups, governmental agencies, and other stakeholders, to support environmental restoration and enhancement programs.
The District of Squamish partners annually with groups to facilitate tree planting initiatives, enhancing our carbon footprint and our riparian areas, such as Tree Canada Projects and TD Tree Days Projects.
Benefits of wetlands extend beyond providing habitat for amphibians. Wetlands play a functional and beneficial role in water retention, infiltration, water quality, flood protection, carbon storage, and temperature regulation. Ephemeral wetlands are seasonal wetlands that typically dry out in the summer.
The District of Squamish has partnered with the Squamish River Watershed Society on various wetland restoration projects throughout Squamish.
