The NAIT Centre for Boreal Research (formerly NAIT Boreal Research Institute) is in the Peace River oilsands region of northwestern Alberta. One of the key research initiatives at the Centre is peatland restoration. There are two main goals of this research: First - to restore the normal water flow between the reclaimed wellsite and the surrounding peatland and second, to restore native plant communities, largely dominated by Spaghnum moss, in the sensitive wetland ecosystem. This video describes research trials conducted on a Shell Canada site in collaboration with Laval University.
