Johnson’s Landing

The Johnson’s Landing landslide is being restored using natural processes.  Pioneering species such as Balsam Poplar and Sitka Alder have been established on the slide.  Many other species, including conifers are now becoming established.

Keats Island

Keats Island shoreline restoration was conducted using the natural processes model based on beach rye and rotting logs.  Old rotting logs are used to provide the framework for the growth of native beach rye grass.

Battle Lake Gas Plant

The former Battle Lake Gas Plant was remediated to remove contaminants and then restored using the rough and loose soil treatment to control erosion.  The successional approach was used to revegetated the area using Balsam Poplar, Willow and Red-osier Dogwood cuttings.

K16 Slide

Two road fill failure landslides in the K16 area of the Nanaimo Lakes forest area.  One was treated using a large rock wall and the other was treated using soil bioengineering systems.  There is a large cost difference between these approaches.

UBC Cliffs

The Point Grey cliffs were part of a much larger outwash plain from continental glaciation 25,000 years ago called Quadra Sediments.  The small grey band at the top of the slope is Vashon Till, a 12,000 year old deposit that resulted from the most recent glacial advance and pushed most of the Quadra sediment out of the Georgia Basin, leaving little bits in various places around the basin.
