Little Rouge Corridor Ecological Restoration Initiative

Little Rouge Corridor Ecological Restoration Initiative
$147,300 - September 11, 2006

Created in 1995 by the Province of Ontario to protect the Rouge River, Rouge Park is currently the largest urban park in North America at 47 square kilometers in size, housing 762 plant species, 225 bird species, 55 fish species, 27 mammal species, and 19 reptile and amphibian species.

Situated close to urban centers, Rouge Park is composed of a variety of natural landscapes, from rolling hills to vast wetlands and sandy beaches, serving as an important region of the Greenbelt to focus on for restoration of local biodiversity.

Rouge Park's Little Rouge Corridor Ecological Restoration Initiative Phase I involves developing detailed site prescriptions for restoration zones to maximize biodiversity, ensuring compatibility with the existing geography and protecting archaeological sites in the process.
