The Hudson’s Bay Wetlands were once no more than a slough in the heart of Prince George, British Columbia. While birds and other wildlife flocked to the marshlands, the city’s human residents generally steered clear of the area that had become cluttered with garbage and debris.

So when TransCanada learned of a plan to clean up, protect and enhance access to the area for future generations, the project was considered to fit squarely with the company’s commitment to environmental stewardship and giving back to the communities where we work and live.

“Environmental responsibility is more than just talk. We take actions each and every day that demonstrate our commitment to environmental protection,” says Karen Etherington, environmental specialist for TransCanada’s Coastal GasLink Pipeline Project in northern B.C. “We are proud to partner with the Prince George Naturalists Club and the City of Prince George in protecting the Hudson’s Bay Wetlands and making them available as a natural classroom for this community, and all of British Columbia, for generations to come.”
