This report is the annual progress report for the 2004/05 fiscal year. This was the ninth year of a ten year program. The report describes the activities undertaken from March 1, 2004 to February 28, 2005. These consisted of fill planting, maintenance and seed harvesting at the Seed Increase Nursery; evaluation of the existing trial, demonstration and operational sites; assessment, maintenance and harvesting of the Seed Production plots; fall seeding to replace three unsuccessful Seed Production plots; cleaning and weighing the seed harvested from the Nursery and Seed Production plots; and various extension activities. As the program is nearing completion, no new trial, demonstration or operational sites were established in 2004. However, surplus seed from the program was used by other organizations to complete habitat enhancement projects at various locations on the west coast.
