SCA US-Canada National Crew 2016 Final Report
The 2016 summer trail season marks the 30th year that the US-Canada International Crew has served as conservationists, educators and stewards on both sides of the border. This crew is made possible in large part by the continued investment of the administrators and field staff of Skagit and Manning Provincial Parks in British Columbia, North Cascades National Park (NOCA) and the Skagit Environmental Endowment Commission (SEEC). This coalition brings the SCA International Crew back year after year to perform trail work, conservation research and other diverse projects.
Grizzly Bear Carrying Capacity in the North Cascades Ecosystem

BC North Cascades Grizzly Bear Project
Shortly after this project was funded, the BC Minister for the Environment, Barry Penner, put a hold on the augmentation plan. The reason for the hold has never been fully explained. The context for the SEEC funded project changed slightly at that point, with less emphasis on preparing the general human population for living with an increased grizzly bear population and slightly more emphasis on outreach to groups and individuals that might have unwarranted fears of or concerns about grizzly bear recovery.
