While keeping COVID best practices and guidelines in mind, the LTVCA Stewardship team has planned an in-person project site tour.
This family friendly, free event will take place at 4 project sites, where LTVCA staff will be available to answer questions and explain the restoration work that took place at the location. Additionally, there are two projects sites for participants to simply drive by and view.
Each project site that was selected will highlight specific environmental challenges and solutions that can be implemented to improve the resiliency of the Thames River subwatershed. At the project sites, attendees will have the opportunity to learn about soil health, regional water quality research, woodlot management, marginal land restoration, species at risk, and urban low impact development. To learn more about the sites: refer to the below google map:
After visiting the sites, registrants can make their way to Red Barn Brewing Company for dinner and refreshments while ALUS Canada Speaker Katherine Balpataky talks to participants about conservation impacts.
