FORT ST. JOHN: BC Hydro invites non-profit recreation groups, local governments and Indigenous groups to submit applications beginning September 1 to October 31, 2021, to develop a rustic recreation site along the Peace River or outside the Site C dam site and reservoir area.
Applicants may apply for up to $10,000 per site to create new or enhance existing rustic recreation sites. Projects may include amenities such as cleared areas for camping, a fire pit, a picnic table or an outdoor washroom.
The Rustic Recreation Site Fund allocates $100,000 during Site C project construction for the development or enhancement of recreation sites located along the Peace River and its tributaries, and outside the dam site and reservoir area. The fund was launched in 2019 to mitigate project impacts on rustic recreation sites due to the creation of the future Site C reservoir.
