New Job Alert!
Check out this new job opportunity from the University of Saskatchewan College of Agriculture and Bioresources!
Restoration practitioners and Indigenous communities have a vested interest in understanding how to
promote healthy resilience ecosystems following anthropogenic disturbance. Working in partnership
with Denison Mines, Indigenous-owned and operated Northwest Communities Environmental Services
(NWCES) and the communities of Beauval, Ile-a-la Crosse, Patuanak (English River First Nation), and
Pinehouse our goal is to develop effective eco-restoration practices on Indigenous territories through a
co-production process. Reconciliation requires new ways of conducting natural science and the rigorous
application of both Indigenous knowledge and Western science is needed to support decision making.
Through knowledge co-production we aim to address knowledge gaps and improve restoration
practices. Specifically, we propose to develop site-specific restoration techniques through furthering our
understanding of the recovery early-stage soil nutrient inputs in disturbed upland boreal forests.
