Stud’s Pasture Wetland, Kamloops

Diane and Sue at Stud's Pasture (April, 2011)

The Stud’s Pasture Wetland on the Tk’emlups Indian Reserve near Kamloops, BC was restored as part of the Wetlands Institute in the summer of 2010. It is currently being monitored by enthusiastic past participants of that institute,  Sue Huddart Diane James. They have since been featured as wetland stewards in our article for Womens Outdoor World Magazine:

When Sue & Diane completed the program they had become motivated to continue monitoring the restored wetland and champion continued collaboration within their community and BCWF.  When asked about the most valuable part of the course, “The whole thing- it opened up a new world. Most valuable was the knowledge that now lets me contribute/get involved with future wetland projects in my community.”

Recently, myself, my wife & resident photographer, and my assistant Natashia Cox traveled from Vancouver to Kamloops to look at the potential for further restoration to this site (for more information on this experience, click here). The wetland that we built last year has matured: plants that we put in during the institute are coming back with the Spring weather and the water level is quite high. Sue and Diane have seen a pair of Golden eye ducks in the wetland as well, indicating that it has potential to house wildlife. We have determined that the site will be further restored this fall in the Kamloops Restoration Workshop (2011).

    Happy 1st Birthday!

    The wetland is progressing wonderfully. It will be interesting to see the water level in the hot month of August.

    Gotta luv the “Swamp Patrol” t-shirts!
