In today’s post, Killbear Naturalist Martha Martens recaps the park’s recent Bioblitz.
I didn’t know that it had been missing from my life, until I was introduced to it at the Killbear Bug Bioblitz on the weekend of June 9, 2018.
To help celebrate our 125th anniversary, Ontario Parks has organized a series of stewardship programs. These events are happening throughout the year and across the province to help protect biodiversity in provincial parks.
On Earth Day, park staff and an eager group of volunteers at Rondeau Provincial Park helped to restore the natural habitat in the park by planting native trees and shrubs.
Today’s post comes from Natural Heritage Education Leader David Bree at Presqu’ile Provincial Park.
“EI” is a term we use a lot at Ontario Parks.
EI stands for ecological integrity, or the biodiversity and naturalness of an ecosystem. Protecting and restoring the ecological integrity of our provincial parks is vitally important to us.
2018 marks Ontario Parks’ 125th anniversary. To help celebrate this milestone, the public will be invited to give back, learn, and participate in a series of stewardship programs to help protect biodiversity in provincial parks. Stewardship programs include BioBlitz events, invasive species removal, and native species planting to name a few.
At Presqu’ile Provincial Park, our money went towards removal of a nasty invasive species: Buckthorn.
