Forests for the Future
$40,000 (9 months)
The project supports action on the Community Conservation and Stewardship Plan for the Northern Bruce, to protect and restore the unique and rich diversity of the area's plant, fish and wildlife habitat through land and water conservation. Forests for the Future aims to restore forest connectivity in the Bruce Peninsula. A task-force will identify major sections of the local forest that have been fragmented over time and develop a strategy to restore these wildlife corridors. Local residents and politicians are engaged in restoration efforts, education activities and a community celebration of forests. The local community will highlight the importance of connectivity for maintaining healthy natural systems, during the 2015 Review of the Niagara Escarpment and Greenbelt Plans.
