A Call-Out from the Niagara Peninsula Conservation Authority

Posted February 3rd, 2021 on Niagara At Large

Niagara, Ontario – The NPCA is in the process of establishing the Wainfleet Bog Advisory Committee and applications are now being accepted at https://getinvolved.npca.ca/wainfleet-bog-advisory-committee until Feb. 28 at 4 p.m.

This committee will provide collaborative perspective, guidance, and expert advice in the review, revision and implementation of the Wainfleet Bog Management Plan and other site strategies for the Wainfleet Bog Conservation Area.

As you may know, the Wainfleet Bog<https://npca.ca/parks-recreation/conservation-areas/wainfleet-bog> is a provincially significant wetland and is the largest least disturbed bog remaining within the Carolinian region of Southwestern Ontario.

The committee will consist of members comprising multi-stakeholder representation from local municipal government, conservation/naturalist clubs or ENGOs, science and academia, conservation area and service users, and First Nations.

Please note that municipal government and First Nations seats will be appointed, however not through this application process.
