Restoration Monitoring Sites


The City of Nanaimo works with Snuneymuxw First Nation and a number of community volunteers and stewardship groups on environmental restoration projects within the City. This work includes improvements to instream fish habitat, the removal and control of invasive species and the replanting and reestablishment of native species in order to increase the biological diversity of the many types of habitat found in Nanaimo.

As a way to monitor progress, the City has installed a number of 'Chronolog' photo monitoring sites. Changes in the environment are difficult to see and understand because they happen so gradually. Photo monitoring provides the opportunity to see environmental changes and to better connect residents with the natural habitat in their parks through 'crowd sourced' time lapse images of restoration sites around the City.
