Public Meeting - Cootes Paradise Heritage Lands and Borer’s Falls-Rock Chapel Heritage Lands Management Plans

Sep 27 | 6:30pm - 9:00pm | Royal Botanical Gardnes, Cafe Annex. 680 Plains Road West

The Cootes to Escarpment EcoPark System is a collaborative initiative of nine organizations and agencies in the Burlington-Hamilton area (including municipal governments, conservation authorities and non-profit organizations). Together, these partner organizations are working to protect, connect and restore more than 1,900 hectares of natural lands, and to deliver sustainable recreation and education opportunities.

Management Plans for the Cootes Paradise and Borer’s Falls-Rock Chapel Heritage Lands are being developed in order to provide a cohesive and holistic management framework for the partner-owned properties. Community engagement is an important aspect of plan development and implementation.

The Project Team received some great input at the first Public Meeting in April 2018 where community members shared their knowledge and experience with the Heritage Lands and discussed issues and opportunities within the study areas. During this second phase of engagement, we would like to build on that input and seek your feedback on the draft Management Plans. The Management Plan documents are available online HERE
