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

Riparian Rangers Ganaraska (GRCA)

Riparian Rangers Ganaraska kicked off in November 2022. The planting phase from Fall 2022 to Fall 2023 was funded by the Great Lakes Local Action Fund (GLLAF) and completed in collaboration with the Ganaraska Region Conservation Authority (GRCA), Sustainable Cobourg and the Towns of Cobourg and Port Hope.  During this phase, student and community volunteers worked together to plant and mulch, and then map and measure (10%) trees at a total of 7 sites in the Port Hope and Cobourg areas. As with all other RR sites, ACER will work to regularly measure and monitor the trees planted at these sites, to add to our Riparian Rangers data repository.
