The Leech Watershed was purchased in 2007 and 2010 from private forest land holders. The area was 95% harvested and has an extensive roaded footprint of more than 400km. This long term project entails disposal of woody debris and old logging infrastructure, tree planting, management of planted forest stands, classification and mapping of geology, terrain stability and soil erosion potential, upgrade of main access roads, deactivation and rehabilitation of excess roads.
The project is currently in year 8 of a 17 year restoration plan.
