Abstract: As recognition of the importance of healthy, functioning ecosystems grows, so does the perceived need to mitigate environmental destruction. To this point many restoration interventions have been largely orchestrated and carried out by specialist organizations non-resident in the local community. Using the experience of the Steelhead Society and Habitat Restoration Corporation (SSHRC) and its partnerships with First Nations and community organizations across British Columbia as examples, this paper looks at the significance of local involvement, “a community legacy”, in restoration projects as an integral element of process planning. Specifically, the significance of Delgamuukw and the current British Columbia treaty process, and the resultant growth in First Nations’ expectations for inclusion in partnerships is examined. This paper argues that First Nations are ideally positioned to take on leadership roles in the development and implementation of restoration and conservation projects. As well, the SSHRC’s watershed restoration project management experience has shown that any environmental group operating within First Nations’ traditional territories will increasingly have to contend with the expectation that project implementations will contain a meaningful element of capacity-building for First Nations communities.
