Corridor Connecting Eco-Community


Here is the poster for the upstream component of an integral Ancaster Creek conservation corridor. While a wonderful project in isolation, we can see this as part of a larger project linking upland river valley to the floodplain in the lower valley (our Lot M) where the McMarsh project is being promoted.

These project have been selected for funding through the Forward With Integrity programme through McMaster University's President's Office.

You will see here, too, reference to artistic input, so integral to the interdisciplinary nature of these projects, again through the environmental arts at McMaster in the person of Judy Major-Girardin, again, funded through Dr. Patrick Deane's FWI.

Thanks to Professors Chad Harvey and Susan Dudley for their work on this initiative at the upland site, a magical place that will hopefully be preserved as a natural site for research and low-impact recreation.

We're heading back out to share the history of this former floodplain/nature sanctuary, and take a look at the rehabilitated future of this contested site in McMaster's west campus. Can we really depave Paradise? It's happening!

Turtle Trouble on World Turtle Day

A new virus infecting the local turtle population, road mortality as cars and trucks continue their shell-crushing trips down Cootes Drive.

Yes, it's WORLD TURTLE DAYand things are admittedly pretty bad for our slow-moving reptile friends.

That means it's time to make some changes!
Why not start with things we can easily control, like our own behaviour. Driving along Cootes?

Pledge now to use an alternate route

A minute or two will save lives!
