Nutrient Pollution Awareness
CAFC developed 5 posters and 3 maps related to nutrient pollution tied to watersheds, land use and wetlands. The posters were designed in such a way that a poster, map and genernal nutrient pollution poster can be displayed as a stand-alone set. The project is designed to get the community talking about nutrient pollution. CAFC is looking for landowners who are interested in having watershed restoration projects occur on their property.
Tree Seedling Planting
Thank you to Sault College for donating 430 tree seedlings to CAFC. Thank You also to all the volunteers who planted trees on their properties. Due to the pandemic this year’s distribution was done minimizing in person contact. CAFC offered the trees in bulk numbers and asked people to request trees via email and have the trees delivered to the end of their driveway. Planting trees is always a very hopeful activity for the future.
