Join Conservation Halton staff for a morning at Glenorchy Conservation Area in North Oakville to assist in hands-on activities to restore grassland and wetland ecosystems.
Volunteers will gain experience in restoration techniques through the collection of native seed from tallgrass prairie and wetland ecosystems. This seed will be planted at a later date on a newly acquired Conservation Halton property in Hamilton that is undergoing restoration initiatives. The collected native, locally sourced seed is needed to take this old agricultural field and turn it into a beautiful native landscape for people and wildlife to enjoy.
