Thames Talbot Land Trust
The Thames Talbot Land Trust restoration project introduces plant species from further south that might be better adapted to warmer climates in their restoration areas.
Rare Charitable Research Reserve
There are few cold- and cool-water trout streams remaining in the Region of Waterloo. Bauman Creek, a small tributary of the Grand River located mostly on rare property, supports a self-sustaining population of brook trout. Rare’s Bauman Creek Restoration project helped restore flow to the channel all the way to the Grand River, while also planting several hundred trees.
Haliburton Highlands Land Trust
In 2013, 2017, and again in 2019, the Township of Minden Hills experienced serious flooding and declared a state of emergency. Flooding and erratic weather patterns are a product of climate change. Wetlands provide a critical function in helping prevent flooding. In 2020, HHLT completed a project to address the detrimental impacts of climate change while also protecting over 160 acres of wetland in the county.
