Whitebark pine workshop
In celebration of the provincial Tree Seed Centre’s 60th Anniversary we hosted a whitebark pine workshop to acknowledge our stewardship mandate.
The workshop consisted of several presentations, available below, and some hands-on seed cutting tests and x-ray evaluations. It was a great opportunity for us to connect with a wider client base and show how our facility can play a role towards this endangered species’ recovery.
