Conserving the foundation and features of the region that supports biodiversity, and the related ecosystem services
Did you know that TLB has the highest diversity of habitats in Ontario?
With species found from north and south and unique species entirely reliant on the region, TLB is a biodiversity hotspot. The region provides invaluable ecosystem services locally and to both the Canadian Shield and St. Lawrence Lowlands. These habitats and biodiversity is a buffer for climate change effects, in turn, keeping us healthy!
Through our Greenway Project we are assessing areas that support biodiversity and provide core ecosystem services. We are providing site visits for landowners and even in areas plant materials to help steward properties and keep Ontario healthy.
