800 spruce seedlings planted at Beatton Provincial Park

On Friday June 21, the Whiskey Jack Nordic Ski Club collaborated with Canfor to plant some 800 spruce seedlings in Beatton Provincial Park.

With the creation of a stadium area, for staging cross country ski race events, the WJNSC sought to mitigate the loss of trees by planting spruce seedlings around the stadium area where the aspen are more open or less mature. Fourteen volunteers participated, over half from Canfor, as well as Whiskey Jack and a BC Parks volunteer.

The seedlings were provided by Canfor. Fortunately, the bugs kept away and the heat of the day was avoided by starting early in the morning.

In 2.5 hours, all 800 seedlings were planted — a huge shout out thank you to Canfor for making this event happen!
