A couple of the projects coming to the area include enhancing winter forage for Moose through mechanical and hand treatments. Construction of outhouses, information kiosks and fire rings at recreation sites around Terrace and Kitwanga. 
 
Other projects across British Columbia include improved recreation sites and trails, enhanced safety along forest service roads, wildlife habitat restoration, and wildfire safety and mitigation.
