Conservation Halton, Ontario, Canada
Burlington, Ontario (Canada)
Conservation Halton in Ontario, Canada engages in innovative educational activities to help citizens understand the importance of creating habitat for wildlife. Brenda VR, a Natural Heritage Ecologist on staff, began YardMapping Conservation Halton on her lunch hour. Quickly, she saw how YardMap is a place to document the preservation efforts of the organization and as a place to store important citizen-science data. The many conservationists and ecologists on staff identify more wildlife each year that are benefiting from Conservation Halton’s habitat features such as the wildflower prairie, bioswale, and nesting boxes.
