FOREST AND STREAM REHABILITATION UPDATE: The NPCA conducted forest and stream rehabilitation work at the Two Mile Creek Conservation Area in Niagara-on-the-Lake in July 2021. The first step that was completed was a tree clearing operation, to be followed by stream restoration work and tree planting.The total area to be rehabilitated is approximately 3.2 hectares (8 acres) and will be within the Two Mile Creek Conservation Area.

This operation addresses concerns of ash tree mortality, trail-user safety, ecosystem diversity, and creek debris, while preserving the healthy upland forest in other parts of the site.

With the first phase now completed, the NPCA understands the conservation area looks very different, and that at times it may be concerning to residents who visit the site in its current state. The NPCA assures residents that it has a great vision for this valued site. However, with much work still ahead, we ask for patience and confidence in our goals to improve the Two Mile Creek Conservation Area for current and future generations through this work. While the results of this first phase may not be visually appealing, it is a necessary step in the process.  

In the spring of 2022, the NPCA will plant 4,800 native trees and complete in-stream and riparian restoration work to reduce erosion and sedimentation and improve habitat and biodiversity.

Two Mile Creek Conservation Area conserves a significant portion of the Lower Two Mile Creek Valley System, between Lakeshore Road and Niagara Stone Road. It is a forested floodplain, conserved for its significant ecological features.

A local trail provides access to Colonel Butler’s Burial Ground where commemorative plaques describe his instrumental work during the late 1700s in developing a British stronghold in Niagara.
