Lower Trent Conservation
2015 Report on the Environmental Health of the Oak Ridges Moraine and Adjacent Greenbelt

This report card is a measurement of the health of the Oak Ridges Moraine subwatersheds within the Lower Trent Conservation watershed region. Human health and well-being are affected by the quality of our natural environment. Monitoring increases our understanding of watershed health and helps target programs and activities to where they are needed most. It is also a tool used to track progress, identify changing conditions and target areas that require protection or enhancement. Lower Trent Conservation watershed region contains only Oak Ridges Moraine portions of the Greenbelt.
