Bambi Bucket Used for Award-Winning Heli-Seeding Initiative

Sep 17 2012

Delta, BC, Canada – When wet ground conditions made conventional hydro-seeding impossible, one federal agency, the Transportation Investment Corporation, decided to put the Bambi Bucket to work heli-seeding as part of an award-winning project.
 
Today, because of this innovative approach, fish and fowl in the Vancouver area can flip, flop and flap for joy because of habitat enhancements undertaken for a highway project.  Although the Transportation Investment Corporation’s focus is highway safety, the Colony Farm Restoration and Enhancement Project has given it some special opportunities to ‘branch out’ beyond the highway to restore tidal flows in the Wilson Farm area of Colony Farm, for the first time since it was diked in the early 1900s.
