Mississauga | The Riverwood Conservancy | 2019
Riverwood Park in Mississauga is a Greenbelt-protected 150-acre oasis of wetlands, forests, creeks, and ravines on the banks of the Credit River, and is home to The Riverwood Conservancy. Through hands-on community events, the Wings, Wildflower and Wilderness Project will address the growing threats to airborne wildlife within the river valley system such as habitat loss, invasive species and climate change. The Riverwood Conservancy champions community-focused environmental stewardship of this natural area, and strives to connect people with nature. Local events will engage over 800 participants in activities such as native wildflower plantings, invasive species removals, and the construction and installation of a ‘Bee Hotel’ – the ideal habitat for a wide variety of solitary nesting bees and insects.
Park People's work is generously supported by a range of corporations, foundations, government agencies and individuals. We are grateful for their support.
