The BC Cattlemen’s Association has received funding from Environment Canada to deliver a pilot program that will enable cattle producers to implement Best Management Practices (BMP’s) and projects that will protect habitat for the Yellow Breasted Chat and the Lewis’s Woodpecker.
The pilot program has funding to operate until March 31, 2019.
This pilot program is designed to assist cattle producers in adopting management practices that benefit their ranch operation as well as the bird species.
The SARPAL pilot program will be working to enhance and maintain habitat related to two bird species: the Yellow Breasted Chat (YBC) and the Lewis’s Woodpecker (LEWO).
Funding can be used for materials, planning, and project costs. Currently, we are seeking landowners who have suitable projects that can be completed by March 31st of each fiscal year. The program has funding until March 31, 2019.
Possible project examples:
Cattle producers who are interested in a project can complete this form. All applications will be reviewed and undergo an evaluation to determine overall benefit to the species and eligibility. Outstanding applications will be held and considered if additional funding is made available.
