Get Involved

Here are a few ways to participate in whitebark pine recovery:

Help us monitor upcoming cone crops

When hiking or working at high elevations below timberline, keep your eyes open for this endangered, bushy-topped, 5-needled pine tree. Conelets are found at the end of branches, usually near the top of the tree. We are interested in immature, 1-year old conelets, which are purplish to pale brown and roughly the size of a grape, with thin, tightly appressed scales. Record additional information about the location and abundance of conelets, including GPS coordinates and elevation, if possible, and include a photograph of the conelets.

Incorporating whitebark pine recovery into your forestry practice

If you are a BC forest professional, chances are that your work encompasses current or future whitebark pine habitat. You have an opportunity to incorporate whitebark pine recovery into your forestry practice. Record and report whitebark pine sightings; help collect cones; update forest plans to include whitebark pine; protect, release and plant whitebark pine in harvest and silviculture operations; participate in restoration projects; and speak up for whitebark pine recovery at meetings.

Organize a whitebark pine information session for your peers or students


Participants in the Bulkley Valley Research Centre's whitebark pine ecosystem restoration project are available to lead field trips, give presentations or participate in meetings to assist your work group, students or community members in learning more about whitebark pine ecology and how they can be involved in restoration efforts.
Please contact Sybille.Haeussler (at symbol) or ajclason (at symbol) to arrange a meeting.
