Taking Turtles to Supercrawl

Restore Cootes will have an info table at this Friday's Supercrawl, tucked in the warm and welcoming Evergreen Community Collaboration Space at 294 James Street North in Hamilton.

We will have Restore Cootes buttons for sale and pledge forms for people who are interested in helping protect at-risk turtles and other species subject to road mortality along Cootes and Olympic Drive in Dundas Ontario.

70% of respondents said they would use an alternative route to protect turtles

Together we can make a difference. In an earlier poll, 70% of respondents said they would use an alternative route to protect turtles, and we want to help you do it!

A biodiversity hotspot, Cootes Paradise is teeming with all kinds of wildlife. The problem is human activity, namely roads and parking lots, creates a hostile and deadly environment for the marsh inhabitants.

I hope you get the chance to drop in and say hello Friday night between sets!

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?

We're going on a hike to introduce McMaster students (and any other interested participants) to this former RBG Coldspring Valley Nature Sanctuary and coldwater creek floodplain  - currently a parking lot - to examine the past, present and future of this place that is undergoing an important ecological transformation.
