Nature Conservancy of Canada Celebrates Township Land Donation
Nature Conservancy of Canada and Lennox and Addington Stewardship Council celebrate a land donation by Loyalist Township
Camden East, ON – On June 11, The Nature Conservancy of Canada (NCC) and the Lennox and Addington Stewardship Council (LASC), invited the public to a celebration of a land donation in Wilton.
This project was initiated by local volunteers in 2017. Since then, 44 hectares (110 acres) of significant habitat near Camden East have been donated to NCC by Loyalist Township for long-term conservation.
Located between (and north of) Belleville and Kingston, the Napanee Limestone Plain is well known for the naturally open rocky limestone habitats known as alvars. These habitats are home to interesting and rare plants and animals, including the striking Prairie Smoke and the endangered Eastern Loggerhead Shrike.
Enjoy the spring wildflowers in bloom, expansive meadows, and the “natural rock garden” of alvar pavement. Discerning folks may even spy a fascinating fossil.
