Got an idea to improve fish and wildlife populations and habitat around Hudson's Hope?

The Fish and Wildlife Compensation Program is accepting applications and notices of intent for projects in the Williston and Dinosaur reservoir areas.

“The notice of intent is a mandatory first step for all grant applicants,” said Chelsea Coady, FWCP's Peace Region Manager, in a news release. “We’re just looking for bit of information about your proposed project."

The program—operated in partnership between BC Hydro, the province, First Nations, and other public groups—funds research-based and hands-on projects targeting lakes, reservoirs, streams, uplands, riparian areas, and species of interest. It's meant to address fish and wildlife impacted by existing Hydro dams.

The program has $2.1 million in project underway this year.

FWCP will hold an online information session on Aug. 29 about the grants and how to apply. Those interested can register by emailing fwcp@bchydro.com.

A second info session will be held for those who submit a notice of intent by Sept. 7. Grant applications are due by Oct. 26.

For more information, call Coady at 250-561-4884 or email chelsea.coady@bchydro.com.
