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.
