Object & Deliverables
The intent of this Project was to provide initial information, which could be used to assist in the future development of a coordinated strategic plan aimed at the maintenance of caribou habitat in the Little Smoky/A La Peche caribou range(s).
Specific objectives include the development of a current habitat assessment for the Little Smoky/A La Peche and the combined caribou range based on the Boreal Caribou Committee (BCC) planning tool; and the development of a habitat assessment and forecast for the Little Smoky/A La Peche and the combined caribou range based on vegetation characteristics and pattern as predicted by timber harvest sequencing.
Data preparation, data analysis & mapping, and report preparation were completed over the period of January 2004 to March 2005 inclusive.
Project results are contained in two separate reports identified as follows:
* Caribou Habitat Assessment in the Little Smoky/A La Peche Region, West Central Alberta, prepared by the Forestry Corporation, and dated October 18th, 2004; and
* Timber Supply Implications of Caribou Habitat Requirements in the Little Smoky/A La Peche Region, prepared by Timberline Forest Inventory Consultants, and dated March 28th, 2005.
