Want to care for your local ecosystem?

Join us at the Oak Ridges Moraine Land Trust’s StarCliff Nature Reserve helping the Land Trust care for this ecologically unique and significant property. The earth will thank you. And so will your body, mind and spirit!
There might not be ice or snow, as the above photo suggests, and it may actually be seasonally warm. But we don’t want anyone to be mislead. And we certainly want everyone to be dressed appropriately.
Through hands-on stewardship we’ll be continuing the control of Common Buckthorn and Tartarian Honeysuckle by transplanting native shrubs and trees growing on the trails into locations where those two invasive shrubs are being removed. Even if the there’s a thin layer of ice on the kettle lake, and even a thin layer of snow, the ground will still be moist and great for digging in! 🙂
Once established, Common Buckthorn and Tartarian Honeysuckle dominate and substantially reduce biodiversity. Our replacing the invasive plants with native ones is significant to reversing the spread and negative impact of the invasive ones and for increasing biodiversity.
