Maintaining and Restoring Natural Areas

Each year, Environmental Resources staff undertake projects in local natural areas and often there is a native vegetation component involved. Once an area is planted, maintenance is required until the area is well established. There are also existing natural areas that need to be maintained to provide and preserve valuable habitat for local wildlife. Grants are sought to restore and maintain natural areas, and create projects that improve stormwater quality and natural resource.

Over 79 acres of natural areas are currently managed by Environmental Resources staff. These areas include:

  • 6 raingardens
  • 3 shorelines
  • 1 pollinator garden
  • 3 channel restorations
  • 3 wetlands and buffers
  • 4 woodlands
  • 3 prairies
