Lambton Wildlife Habitat Fund distributed nearly $10,000 to projects throughout Lambton County during 2019!
North Lambton Secondary Students partnered with Lambton Trails Shores Committee to plant 24 native trees in the Nature Conservancy Canada property at the Ipperwash Dunes and Swales.
Scouts Canada planted barren dunes with Marum grass to prevent erosion and to protect sensitive habitat.
Great Lakes Secondary students re-naturalized 3000 square feet of lawn into a pollinator garden (pictured below). Other projects included planting 1500 native wetland and prairie plants at the AAmjiwnaag Scott Road project, a Pollinator Garden planted at the Camlachie United Church, 23 acres of Lake Huron Shoreline restored by the Lambton Shores Phragmites Group, Native vegetation planted along the reservoir shoreline to reduce erosion and improve wildlife habitat at the Warwick Conservation Area, and Ontario NativeScapes planting native tallgrass prairie habitat in the Burton Drain Wildlife Habitat Corridor located within the Sydenham River watershed.
