Forests and Treed Swamps
Forests and Treed Swamps working group
The Forests and Treed Swamps Working Group collaborates to address forest fragmentation, invasive forest species, and degradation of interior treed wetlands to keep these systems well-functioning in the Long Point Walsingham Forest (LPWF) Priority Place.
The priorities of this group are to:
- Identify areas of low forest connectivity and improve habitat and increase forest cover through tree planting on private lands
- Implement a project to monitor treed wetland water levels on private and public lands
- Engage woodlot owners, forestry industry, and the public to increase awareness of and practice Species at Risk Best Management Practices
- Develop a model for invasive species control and implement invasive species control on private and public lands
Partner organizations within this group include: ALUS Norfolk, Birds Canada, Canadian Wildlife Service, Long Point Basin Land Trust, Long Point Region Conservation Authority, Long Point World Biosphere Reserve Foundation, Nature Conservancy of Canada, Norfolk County, Norfolk Woodlot Owner’s Association, and St. Williams Conservation Reserve Community Council.
