Lower Trent Conservation
Did You Know?

On average, Conservation Authorities plant more than 2M trees annually through their various tree planting programs and stewardship initiatives. This work helps to mitigate climate change by moderating the effects of drought and flooding, reducing soil erosion, reducing GHGs, sequestering carbon, providing habitat for wildlife, creating recreational opportunities, and providing an essential economic resource.


Report on the Environmental Health of the Oak Ridges Moraine and adjacent Greenbelt Lands

A report card measuring the health of the Oak Ridges Moraine and adjacent Greenbelt watersheds has been prepared by the Conservation Authorities Moraine Coalition. The document provides science-based monitoring data and analysis to help inform the 2015 review of the Greenbelt Plan and the Oak Ridges Moraine Conservation Plan. It recommends those on-the-ground actions, administrative tools and additional resources needed to maintain, improve or restore these important lands.The project was funded the Friends of the Greenbelt Foundation.
