Rbc helps re­store North bay shore

North Bay Nugget - - NEWS - NUGGET STAFF

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.
