A partnership between the Penticton Indian Band, the provincial Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations and the Okanagan Region of the B.C. Wildlife Federation will work together for habitat and cultural enhancement in the Garnett Valley area north of Summerland.

The primary objective of the partnership is to treat forest ingrowth and habitat degradation in the area.

A secondary objective is to use traditional practices and ecosystem and fire science in harmony.

The partnership has received $150,000 for its efforts.

The funding, from the Forest Enhancement Society of B.C., is part of more than $2.74 million given to 23 projects around the province.
