OUR MISSION: ACER 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.

Riparian Rangers

PARTNERING WITH CONSERVATION AUTHORITIES TO RESTORE, MONITOR AND PROTECT RIPARIAN ZONES

Since 2014, ACER has been working with municipal and regional conservation authorities to help restore, monitor and protect the riparian ecosystems that border rivers and streams. These vulnerable corridors and the trees and plants that thrive in them play a crucial role in climate stability, animal and plant diversity, erosion and flood control, and water purity. With this program, participants learn about their local watersheds and their surprising significance in your community, and take part in projects to monitor, protect and strengthen them. 


Moniteurs Riverains

En collaboration avec les autorités municipales et régionales de conservation, les Moniteurs Riverains bénévoles d’ACER surveillent et protègent les écosystèmes riverains qui bordent les rivières et les ruisseaux. Ces corridors vulnérables et les arbres et les plantes qui y poussent jouent un rôle crucial dans la stabilité du climat, la diversité animale et botanique, l’érosion et le contrôle des inondations, et la pureté de l’eau. Avec ce programme, participants apprendront à connaître leurs bassins versants et leur surprenante signification dans votre communauté, et participerez à des projets pour les surveiller, les protéger et les renforcer.
