The Land Conservancy for Kingston, Frontenac, Lennox & Addington is hosting two free public events in October about land conservation in this region.
“We are lucky to live in a part of Ontario where we still have a chance to get the right balance between human use and habitat conservation,” says Dr. Kate Laird, chair of the group’s mapping committee. “We are developing maps that identify priorities for land stewardship and conservation activities here.”
The public meetings will give people a chance to see the maps, talk to naturalists with knowledge about plants and animals, and hear a presentation.

In Roblin, on Monday evening October 23rd, from 6:30 to 8:30 pm, Mark Stabb from the Nature Conservancy of Canada will be speaking on grassland and alvar environments. The talk is entitled “Our Unique and Sensitive Grassland and Alvar Environments”. It takes place at the Roblin Fire Hall, 3264 Highway 41.
At the Sunday afternoon October 29th meeting in Sydenham arborist/ecologist Oliver Reichl’s talk will be on “What’s happening to our trees?” the talk takes place from 2-4pm
Both events are free event and refreshments will be served.

“We are hoping that people will come to one or both meetings to learn more about local ecology and the conservation work of their local land trust, the Land Conservancy for Kingston, Frontenac, Lennox & Addington,” adds Laird.
The Land Conservancy preserves habitat in this region by owning land and holding conservation easements on land to keep the land in its natural state. Over the last few years, the Land Conservancy has undergone a major Natural Heritage Planning process which you will also hear about at the events.
