Omega Nutrition's Commitment to Health Extends to the Environment.
In 1994 Omega Nutrition transformed over 60% of its 5 acres
into a native wetland and planted thousands of native trees
and shrubs. The project has been tremendously successful in attracting blue herons, wood ducks
and many other forms of wildlife to the area.
The wetlands restoration project on Omega Nutrition's property,
was a joint effort by the US Fish and Wildlife Service and
Omega Nutrition under the Washington State Ecosystems Conservation
Program (WSECP). David C. Frederick, a State Supervisor at
the US Department of the Interior, stated one year after initiation:
"We are extremely pleased with the success of the
project to date. The hundreds of wetland plants which were
planted at the site are thriving. Great blue herons, cinnamon
teal, pileated woodpeckers and a variety of other wildlife
have already been observed utilizing the site... The Service
is confident that the restored wetland will continue to thrive
under the stewardship of Omega Nutrition. We hope other businesses
in your area will follow your company's lead in taking an
active role in the restoration and protection of our precious
We give special thanks to Bryan Farnum for his help in the development and engineering of this ecosystem.
Over 80 employees in our Vancouver B.C. and Bellingham,
WA offices, work to provide the freshest flax oil possible
on both sides of the border. Good health and best wishes,
from Omega's Dedicated Team.
