* Grant awarded for the restoration and public engagement of John Earle Chase Memorial Park.
The Chase Memorial Park comprises 400 acres located just north of Gannon’s Narrows, and has been identified by NHIC as a habitat for 12 difference species at risk. The land has been identified by the MNRF as a significant habitat and contains remnants of prairie tall grass that represents and endangered ecosystem. KTL has been working with the Trent-Severn Waterway and Parks Canada to develop a stewardship plan for the park, including plans to restore the Tallgrass prairie over time and develop walking trails to enable the public to enjoy the features of the park, while minimizing human impact.
