Project Name:
Stream Crossings and Fisheries in Northeast Alberta
Company Name:
Alberta-Pacific Forest
Projected Cost:
$119,293.00

The primary goal of this Project was the development of a stream/fisheries database for northeast Alberta that could be used by all regional industry to evaluate potential impacts or effects.

Specific Project objectives included -
* documenting relative status of sport fish,
* describing distributions of fish,
* locating new and undisturbed drainages that contain sport fish for future reference and baseline study,
* identifying & describing critical fish habitats, and
* assessing & monitoring stream crossings to develop construction practices that are more ecologically protective.

Fisheries' surveys and watercourse crossing assessments were carried out over the summer seasons of 2000, 2001 and 2002.

Final Project results are contained in a 255 report entitled "Catalog of the Alberta Pacific Forest Industries' Fisheries Surveys of the Existing and Proposed Watercourse Crossings, 2000 - 2002, prepared by Slav Stanislawski, and dated May 2003.

ALPAC-01-019
Project Name:
Use "Patchworks" to Model Mixedwood Silvicultural Harvest Scheduling in L1
Company Name:
Alberta-Pacific Forest
Projected Cost:
$81,000.46

The primary objective of this Project was the operational assessment of the "Patchworks" Model to rationalize clearcut and partial harvest activities in the L1 Forest Management Unit.

Specific objectives included provision of estimated production possibilities that could be achieved from a strategy of conifer roundwood enhancement using understory protection harvest; and production of spatially explicit harvest allocations identifying the exact locations where the proposed treatments should be implemented.

Activities associated with this Project occurred over the calendar years 2001 and 2002.

Study results are contained in two separate reports entitled "Patchworks Analysis of the L1 Management Unit", authored by Tom Moore & dated October 26, 2001; and "Patchworks Analysis of the L1 Management Unit - Phase II" also prepared by Tom Moore.

ALPAC-01-024
Project Name:
Model II Regeneration Standards for Mixedwood Management
Company Name:
Alberta-Pacific Forest
Projected Cost:
$109,999.83

The primary goal of this Project was the development of new regeneration standards for a number of mixedwood management treatments as defined in a previous pilot study in FMU L1.

Specific Project objectives included -
* quantifying juvenile stand development trajectories for which the mixedwood management interventions were designed to emulate,
* link mixedwood management yield curves to appropriate juvenile stand development trajectories,
* use juvenile stand development trajectory attributes as targets to establish Model II Regeneration Standards for mixedwood management treatments, and
* test timber volume growth Projections based on proposed regenerations standards.

The data compilation, analyses, regeneration standards development. and standards testing activities associated with this Project took place over the period January 2002 to June 2006 inclusive.

Project results are contained in a thirty-five page report entitled "First Approximation Alternative Regeneration Standards for the AL-Pac FMA, prepared by the Forestry Corporation, and dated June 23, 2006.

Project Name:
Determination of Fish Habitat and Fisheries Potential in Cabin Creek Drainage
Company Name:
ANC Timber Ltd.
Projected Cost:
$22,496.25

The Project's primary purpose was the collection and analyses of fish habitat and fisheries data in the Cabin Creek drainage, adjacent to the north boundary of the Willmore Wilderness Area.

Study objectives were to determine the fish species present & their distribution; describe fish habitat within the sampled waters; identify critical fish habitat; determine fisheries potential within the drainage; and determine if and where bull trout spawning occurred.

The Project activities/results are described in a 127 page technical report dated December 1995 and authored by F R M Environmental Consulting Ltd.

Projected Cost:
$0.00

This Project was cancelled at the request of ANC Timber Ltd. This request was the result of changes in the Company's forest management areas.

Project Name:
Little Smoky River Corridor Management
Company Name:
ANC Timber Ltd.
Projected Cost:
$74,567.50

This Project was part of an ongoing effort to develop a management strategy for the Little Smoky River Corridor.

The Project divided the Study Area into five Management Areas (Valley Bottom, Caribou, Access Corridors, Viewshed Zones, and Recreation). For each Area, a set of management guidelines were established. These guidelines will be monitored, reviewed and modified over time - the first reassessment was scheduled for June of 1999.

For furrther information Project No's. ANC-01-02, ANC-01-03, ANC-01-04, ANC-01-07 & ANC-01-13 may be referred to.
