The Trench Society was formed in 1996 by a coalition of hunters, ranchers and environmentalists working together to restore the Crown grasslands and open forests of the Rocky Mountain Trench. The Rocky Mountain Trench Ecosystem Restoration Program was launched by the B.C. Ministry of Forests and Range in 1998. The program operates on designated zones on Crown range units in the Trench, and is guided by a broad-based stakeholder Steering Committee which includes the Trench Society.
