Shell Canada will be providing funding to plant more than 800,000 trees west of Williams Lake.
The Tsilhqot’in National Government (TNG) announced Nov. 12 it will be jointly undertaking a reforestation project with the oil and gas company in Tsilhqot’in territory where the 2017 wildfires left a charred landscape.
“It’s exciting news,” TNG tribal chair Chief Joe Alphonse said.
