Rbc helps restore North bay shore
The rbc Foundation has donated $15,000 to the North bay-mattawa conservation authority’s restore your shore program.
The funds were made available through the rbc environmental Program to reduce shoreline erosion, minimize nutrient runoff and trap phosphorus-bound particulate.
The funds helped with the planting of native trees, shrubs and herbaceous plant species at the eva Wardlaw conservation area, adjacent to the mouth of Parks creek and the Lake Nipissing shoreline.
This lakefront planting consisted of 15 metres of shoreline with 118 plants, including 33 trees, 60 shrubs and 25 grasses. The plants were installed in three separate locations on the property and encompass approximately 194 square metres.
The conservation area is named after the late eva Wardlaw, a former city councillor, Nbmca board member and avid supporter of watershed and environmental management. Family members were on hand for the cheque presentation and a ceremonial tree planting.
The restore your shore Program is in its fourth year, engaging shoreline property owners in the stewardship of their shorelines.
