Project Description

Ontario Streams

September 2013

Ontario Streams

* Granted $ 8,000 for The Lower Humber Wetland project

Project objectives:

The purpose of the project is to improve the health and biodiversity of the provincially significant, but degraded, Lower Humber River Wetland Complex, while also increasing the amount of wetland habitat available. This goal will be achieved through addressing the following objectives: non-native invasive species control, planting of native vegetation, garbage cleanup, and community engagement. By actively engaging the community in the implementation of this project, the public will learn about the importance of wetlands to the environment and our society, and will hopefully develop a stewardship ethic towards these green spaces.

Completion date is December 2015
