Ecosystem Management

Programs that protect and restore entire ecosystems (natural areas made up of a community of plants, animals and other living things in a particular physical or chemical environment) as a means of protecting all species within the environment before they become endangered and conserving natural biological diversity while supporting a sustainable level of economic and recreational activity. Ecosystem conservation/management is a complement to species-level conservation rather than an alternative, and addresses the primary cause of species decline (habitat destruction).



An environmental management agency established under the Conservation Authorities Act dedicated to the conservation and enjoyment of watershed lands and water resources in the Niagara Peninsula.

Holds a number of annual events that count on community volunteers to participate and aid in cleaning, stream rehabilitation, and native tree and shrub plantings.

Visit the website for a list of each year's events.
