Parks Canada’s Tammy Dobbie and Andrew Laforet discuss Parks Canada's habitat restoration work and the science behind how the health of our natural areas is measured. Then, hear about methods used at Point Pelee National Park, such as the use of prescribed fire to mimic natural disturbances in savannah habitat, as well as targeted invasive species removal in the park’s marsh.

You'll also hear from Brock University Masters student Angela Mallett discussing her research topic "Understanding Perceptions of the State of the Environment in Relation to Ecological Measures".

Angela's research was conducted at the Niagara Glen and involved an ecological integrity assessment as well as surveys administered to several groups on their perceptions of the state of the environment.
