Bruce Nidle is a Registered Professional Biologist with over 35 years of experience in environmental assessment, habitat inventory, stormwater management, and single/multi-family urban development projects. He presently works for PGL Environmental Consultants of Vancouver.
He spoke to us about “riparian areas”. What they are, why they’re important, what threatens them, and what legislation we have in British Columbia to protect them.
Riparian areas are important for many reasons, not least of which is that they provide habitat for a myriad of creatures!
