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.

Riparian Rangers Etobicoke – Wildwood Park D1

On November 5 ,2014, 46 students from Pierre Laporte M.S. arrived at Wildwood Park located on Derry Road East and Goreway Drive in Mississauga. These dedicated students planted native plant species and removed invasive species (Buckthorn and Garlic Mustard) . They also cleaned up the site so it was free from litter. They also monitored approximately 10% of each native tree and shrub species planted.

An essential element to this program is to keep community members engaged to study climate change impacts over a long-term period. Therefore, if you are interested to learn more about this program or wish to volunteer to measure trees next year, please contact our office.
