Since its founding in 1885, Niagara Parks has served a mandate that includes the preservation of natural habitat along the Niagara River corridor from Lake Erie to Lake Ontario. Today, Niagara Parks’ environmental stewardship mandate is at the very centre of its mission as the Commission works to protect, conserve and promote the natural and cultural heritage of the Niagara River corridor.
Join Niagara Parks’ Ellen Savoia, Senior Manager of Environmental Planning, and Corey Burant, Project Manager of Forest Health, as they discuss environmental stewardship in the Niagara Parks with Ryan Plummer, Professor and Director of the Environmental Sustainability Research Centre at Brock University.
You'll also hear from Brock University Masters student Brooke Kapeller discussing her research topic "Exploring environmental stewardship in the Niagara Region of Canada: How do elements of environmental stewardship relate to success?"
This thesis research focuses on understanding local environmental stewardship efforts. Specifically, the investigation sought to illuminate elements of environmental stewardship initiatives and factors making for success.
