WETLAND INSTITUTE ALUMNI RESTORES WETLAND IN FRASER VALLEY
Why did the farmer restore a wetland? Because it mud perfect sense.
Terrible puns aside, Celia Serrano probably didn’t anticipate how deep she would wade into BC’s wetland culture when she boarded her plane from Spain to start her internship with Balance Ecological in the Lower Mainland. She spent numerous weeks monitoring the endangered Oregon Spotted frog, and, in July, Ms. Serrano attended the BC Wildlife Federation’s Wetland Institute, a 7 day hands-on workshop on Wetland Restoration and Protection. In just a few short months, she had taken that knowledge to construct a wetland in the District of Kent in the Fraser Valley of British Columbia.
