Bulkley Valley Research Centre - Science in the Public Interest

A New Strategic Plan

The Bulkley Valley Research Centre (BVRC) is an independent, not-for-profit society conducting high-quality, interdisciplinary research on natural and cultural resources. We create learning and extension opportunities for both our members and the community through workshops, conferences and other networking events, and support our community by promoting the region and investing locally.

The Board of Directors has just approved the Strategic Plan for 2018-2022. To review the direction of the BVRC for next five years, CLICK HERE.

Featured Research

Whitebark Pine Restoration

Led by Sybille Haeussler, PhD, UNBC, Smithers

The BVRC, led by Sybille Haussler, PhD and BVRC member, has been restoring endangered whitebark pine ecosystems in the mountains of northern BC since 2011. 2018 is anticipated to be the largest cone crop since 2007.

Because the pines are dying from the white pine blister rust, good cone crops occur intermittently and it is essential to undertake as large a collection as possible. The goal for 2018 is to collect 1 million seeds.
