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 Lake Simcoe

Riparian Rangers Lake Simcoe is a 2 year project funded by Environment Canada, and completed in cooperation with the Lake Simcoe Region Conservation Authority (LSRCA). ACER staff established a benchmark for 10% (2,125) of the over 10, 000 tree and shrubs planted by the LSRCA in riparian zones. ACER staff tagged, mapped, and measured 1108 plants at 8 sites in the first year (2015) and 1017 plants at 15 sites in the second year (2016).
