Make a Donation to Niagara Parks!
Why is your donation important?
Species diversity is high in the Niagara area, and a number of species at risk inhabit Niagara Parks. We are at the southernmost limit for many northern species, while species from further south have migrated to this area over time. Carolinian forests such as the ones found throughout Niagara Parks contain many species at the northern tip of their range making it the most diverse ecosystem in Canada. As a result southern Ontario is now home to over 2200 species of plants and hundreds of species of animals. Many of the natural spaces are being inundated with non-native species that crowd out the native ones.
The Niagara Parks Tree Planting Program is part of a larger conservation effort to replant native species and enhance the diversity of our natural areas. Your contribution will aid Niagara Parks in our efforts to maintain the important forest ecosystems in our care. Through your donation we will purchase native trees to be used in our replanting and restoration projects throughout Niagara Parks.
