Current Projects

HSC is a partner delivery agent with Forests Ontario under the 50 Million Trees fund coordinating affordable, professional tree planting for Haldimand landowners.

HSC has partnered with 8Trees Incorporated on this three-year project to monitor, mitigate threats, create habitat and promote stewardship to prevent further decline of the endangered Gray Ratsnake in Haldimand and surrounding area.

HSC has created a smart phone app for volunteers to report sightings of reptiles and amphibians on Haldimand County road rights-of-way. Data are used to identify high mortality locations for cautionary wildlife crossing signage and to improve our knowledge of local amphibian and reptile populations.

Volunteer Nesting Box Program

HSC has partnered with Ducks Unlimited Canada to engage community volunteers to monitor, maintain and repair nesting boxes on established wetland restoration projects for landowners who are no longer able to do so themselves.

HSC has partnered with Ducks Unlimited Canada and local landowners to increase wetland habitat across Haldimand County.

HSC has partnered with Bird Studies Canada and community volunteers to establish baseline amphibian and bird breeding data through the Great Lakes Marsh Monitoring Program.

HSC and Land Care Niagara have partnered with Environment Canada to enrich our Landowner Tree Planting Program with funding to expand the program to include broad spectrum management of all aspects of increasing forest cover habitat for migratory birds.
