PRINCE GEORGE — The College of New Caledonia Research Forest Legacy Fund is seeking applicants for 2023. The successful applicant can receive up to $50,000 to continue their work sustaining and revitalizing local natural resources. The fund is open to individuals, business, community groups, First Nations communities, government agency, secondary schools and post-secondary schools. Launched in 2019, the fund is made available through the harvest and sale of timber affected by spruce beetles within the research forest north of Prince George. Since 2019, the fund has provided $190,000 to projects in northern B.C. Last year two legacy fund grants were awarded – to the Fraser Headwaters Alliance for their work upgrading the historic Goat River Trail and to the Nazko First Nation’s Landscape Recovery program for their work reclaiming native plants and restoring habitats.
