OUR MISSION: ACER supports communities, government agencies and corporations in taking action to reduce biodiversity loss and strengthen climate resilience by increasing and monitoring urban and riparian zone forest canopy.

Lowville Creek

Over 600 trees and shrubs were planted in Lowville Park on Sunday, 30 September, 2012 as part of Trout Unlimited Canada’s on-going Bronte Creek restoration work. This work was completed with the help and support of TD Tree Days, The Ontario Federation of Anglers and Hunters, The Lake Ontario Atlantic Salmon Restoration Program and ACER. Over 70 volunteers came out to this event and helped by planting streamside vegetation. All the newly planted ¬†species were tagged, recorded and measured which will serve as a benchmark data for long-term monitoring. Through this, ACER will be able to track the success of their planted sites over the years to spread awareness of the changing climate and its affect on natural landscapes.
