This project was initiated by Western Forest Products Inc. (WFP) to provide the basis for physical watershed assessment and to develop indicators for watersheds in Tree Farm Licence 44. The total project area is 165,000 ha. It compromises three sub-areas: Alberni East (111,736) which is the portion of TFL 44 east of Alberni Canal; ALberni West (22,910 ha) which is the portion west of Alberni Canal; and the Great Central Lake area (30,350ha).
The objectives are:
-to propose indicators for tracking the effectiveness fo forest management strategies, and indicators for Sustainable Forest Management of watersheds;
-to identify candidate sites for possible riparian and in-stream restoration projects; and
-to characterize physical watershed conditions as the basis for developing fores management strategies.
