Another Riparian Rangers Mississauga Event!

On Wednesday, October 22nd ACER and 19 youth volunteers from St. Joan of Arc Catholic Secondary School in Mississauga came together to restore another riparian zone. Over 300 native trees and shrubs were planted earlier this month which contributed to the City of Mississauga’s One Million Tree goal, and these volunteers stepped in to take the project to the next level. Volunteers assisted ACER with monitoring 10% of each tree species planted, removing invasive species such as buckthorn and dog-strangling vine, and cleaning up the site from litter. Data and pictures will be posted soon!

The next and final Riparian Ranger Mississauga event is scheduled for October 28th at Birchwood Park (near Lakeshore Road West and Clarkson Road North).
