Located in the Frontenac Arch, Lost Bay serves as a critical habitat connecting Algonquin Park to Adirondack Park in the United States. This cleanup will give participants an opportunity to help restore the vast mixed woodlands and extensive wetlands that make up this magnificent property.
In the morning participants will help remove small pieces of rubbish from the site, followed by lunch at 12:30pm. The afternoon will consist of distributing seeds of native plant species in order to prevent colonization of invasive species in this disturbed habitat.
Provided: Trash pickers, garbage bags, gloves, brown bag lunch (sandwich, snacks)
To Bring: Come prepared to spend the day outdoors. Please bring a re-fillable water bottle, hat, sunscreen, and sturdy, closed-toed footwear. Water will be provided for you to re-fill your water bottle throughout the day. (Optional: knee pad).
Come out and help restore this mixed woodland forest in the Frontenac arch with Ontario Nature!
We would like to thank the government of Ontario (Land Stewardship and Habitat Restoration Program) for making this event possible.
