First Nations plant nursery bringing natural touch to reclamation

Over 50 species of grass, wildflowers, shrubs and trees native to the region will be produced in approximately 14,000 square feet of greenhouse just north of Chetwynd, British Columbia this summer.

It is good news for the natural resource sector and local residents with concerns about maintaining the ecological integrity of the area, not to mention the Saulteau and West Moberly First Nations who are about to work with the mining and oil and gas industries in a new way as equal owners of the native plant nursery.
