Year 1 – Grassland Restoration at Upper Credit

Before the hard work begins, CVC staff are getting to know the plants, animals and insects living in the field at Upper Credit Conservation Area.  With help from students at the University of Toronto Mississauga, we are conducting monitoring studies and collecting data to learn how restoring the field with native plants will improve the habitat for wildlife.

To prepare the field we are removing trees and shrubs, applying a limited amount of safe herbicide and tilling the soil. These steps will help control the growth of unwanted plants such as invasive species.
