Our major project and latest success to date is our efforts to preserve the Silver Creek Wetland.
The Silver Creek Wetland, the most important coastal wetland on southern Georgian Bay, now has the backing of both municipalities with jurisdiction over its area. The Collingwood Town Council and The Blue Mountains Council have both passed motions in support of a proposal to protect the Wetland in perpetuity.
“The Silver Creek Wetland – A Vision for the Future” Plan has been put forward to the Councils as well as the NVCA and the GSCA. It is being presented to the NEC in November. The Plan would transfer management of the Wetland and its sensitive portions—those that by law must remain unaltered—to the NVCA.
The Wetland is a rich, bio-diverse area that improves water quality, provides habitat for hundreds of species of bird, reptile and mammal, and reduces erosion. It spans just over 165 hectares and has survived waves of proposed development since the 1980s.
