Location: 8642 Adjala 20 Sideroad Alliston, ON L9R 1V1

Volunteer to restore the Nottawasaga River

​We will be stepping into chest waders and wading into waist-deep water and anchor old Christmas trees into the streambank to prevent erosion, which causes
  • the water to be murkier and warm faster
  • algae blooms
  • degradation of fish habitat
Volunteers must be very comfortable in water and over 14 years old.

River Bends on the Mend (Part 1)
Date: Wednesday, July 20, 2022 9:00 AM - 2:30 PM
Location: Minesing Wetlands Natural Area

Put the Wiggle back in the Willow.jpg

Are you tired of sticking to the straight and narrow? So is Willow Creek! Join NVCA and the Nature Conservancy of Canada for a wet and wild day of installing wing deflectors made of upcycled Christmas trees along Willow Creek in the internationally significant Minesing Wetlands. 

Once installed, these wing deflectors will give Willow Creeks its “wiggle” back by giving the stream its natural meander (s-shape) back and acting as habitat for fish and aquatic bugs! Be ready to get wet, work hard and have fun!
