The Niagara Bruce Trail Club is forming a Biodiversity Committee whose purpose is to facilitate the protection and enhancement of biodiversity along the Niagara Bruce Trail corridor through:
 
- Education - work parties, educational hikes, social media, newsletters, signage 
- Developing and managing programs to rehabilitate properties - including, but not limited to, monitoring and controlling invasive species & monitoring and planting native Ontario species
- Coordinating and reporting on plant and animal species monitoring programs including the Bluebird box program and disease resistant elm tree plantings
 
Members with plant identification skills would be helpful or conservation related experience.
 
 
The Bruce Trail Conservancy is a charitable organization committed to establishing a conservation corridor containing a public footpath along the Niagara Escarpment, in order to protect its natural ecosystems and to promote environmentally responsible public access to this UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve.  Money raised by the conservancy and its clubs goes toward purchasing land for the trail and to maintaining the trail for future generations.
