Digging in

Stratford Gazette

One hundred students from Stratford Central and Shakespeare public were hard at work Friday planting 300 native trees and shrubs along the slopes of the stormwater pond off of Lorne Avenue, just east of Romeo Street.

The activity was the first step in what is expected to be a long and multi-year project by the the Upper Thames River Conservation Authority and City of Stratford to naturalize several stormwater ponds in the area.

The new stormwater pond naturalization will help create a natural filter to remove pollutants from the water, increase biodiversity and wildlife habitat, and shade the ponds to improve habitat for aquatic species.

The project is funded by the city and TD Friends of the Environment Foundation. Other project partners include Stratford Civic Beautification and Environmental Awareness Committee, and Stratford Communities in Bloom Committee.
