Abstract

Kenna Cartwright Municipal park is located within the Bunchgrass and Ponderosa Pine biogeoclimatic zones of Kamloops, BC. Grasslands are an often overlooked and undervalued ecosystem within the large and diverse topography of BC. However, their value cannot be underestimated as they house over 25% of our provinces endangered or threatened plant and animal species. Conservation and restoration of these precious areas through public awareness, community participation and local stewardship is paramount to their survival. Overall, the project was extremely successful with restoration, education and management activities exceeding our expectations. Accomplishments included: producing the historical natural condition and developing a desired future condition, continuing and expanding noxious weed control efforts, on-ground restoration and community education.
