Based throughout Alberta, GP Restoration Solutions provides products for reclamation, remediation and ecological restoration. Our products are developed and tested by ecologists, plant taxonomists and research scientists to ensure their effectiveness. We are not simply manufacturers of these products, but have developed these products through years of delivering environmental services. We can provide value added services to each of our products such as research support, training in the use of the products, and on the ground experience through our affiliates (Tannas Conservation Services Ltd. and Eastern Slopes Rangeland Seeds Ltd.).

We are a family owned and operated company with a legacy of over 40 years of work in the environmental field of western Canada. We have been producing native seed and plants for over 35 years and acted as environmental professionals for over 40 years. Before we started building specialized equipment for ecological restoration we have worked for decades with similar types of equipment and allowing us to perfect our designs.

In 2019 we bought up the native seed harvesters from Prairie Habitats in Manitoba Canada to add their excellent native seed harvesting equipment to our line of floating islands systems that we are developing for the restoration industry. We are excited to announce that in 2020 we will have new and improved designs of harvesters and floating island systems that we will be bringing to the market.

Our specialization as plant community ecologists, wetland scientists and native plant propagation specialists has allowed us to develop our islands with a focus on plant growth and replicating natural processes. With versatility in mind we have developed our islands to be easily adapted to our clients needs whether for remediation, aesthetics or habitat creation. Our goal is to deliver a high quality and effective product that is easy to install and maintain.
