Big Bar landslide response

The Big Bar landslide, located on a remote section of the Fraser River, 64 kilometres north of Lillooet, British Columbia, created a barrier to the vital seasonal northward Fraser salmon migration. In partnership with First Nations and the Province of BC, we are working towards restoring sustainable fish passage for future salmon returns.
