Although best known for our display gardens, Royal Botanical Gardens is working hard to restore the once biologically rich aquatic habitats of Cootes Paradise marsh and lower Grindstone Creek, which flow into Hamilton Harbour in western Lake Ontario.
Several conservation projects are underway at the Gardens. Of particular importance is Project Paradise, the largest restoration project of its kind in North America.
Many other conservation projects are underway. Click on the project names below to learn more, or contact the natural lands department for more information about our conservation programs.
