July 9th Wildlife and Biodiversity Day
You’re Invited: Meet Some Wildlife and Tackle Some Invaders –
Join our friends at Willow Park Ecology Centre in Halton Hills for a day of invasive plant removal along one of the regions most valuable ecological communities!
Did you know that the Hungry Hollow ravine is a Credit Valley “biodiversity hotspot” (i.e., a Centre for Biodiversity)? The beautiful ravine along Silver Creek is a wonderful, close-to-home getaway. It’s a treat for walkers, birders, cyclists and anyone who likes time in nature. The Town of Halton Hills and Credit Valley Conservation (CVC) deserve much credit for keeping this special place protected. But Hungry Hollow has an invader called European Buckthorn. Since the 1800s it’s kept on growing and spreading. Removing such invasive species and replacing them with native Ontario species will give this uniquely biodiverse urban space a health boost.
