OUR MISSION: As our climate changes, ACER supports communities with grassroots initiatives to plant trees, and educates on how to measure, monitor and report on tree health and growth

Paradise Grove Park

ACER is currently working in collaboration with the Niagara Parks Commission and Climate Action Niagara to collect the data of 2 plots at Paradise Grove Park, as part of “Yes, We CAN” project.

The Niagara Project has begun with primary funding from Earth Day Canada/Sobey’s. Our partners are Climate Action Niagara, Niagara Parks Commission and Scouts Canada. This project will demonstrate the effectiveness of local monitoring and reporting of environmental change in long-term schoolyard planting and forest monitoring programs. The Niagara Project extends ACER’s Ontario “ Measuring our Resources and Planting for Change” school sites and “Go Global” community forest research plot program.

Paradise Grove Park presents a unique opportunity in black-oak savanna forest in one-hectare plots to compare the effects of a controlled burn on biodiversity.
