Conservation Projects

Although best known for our display gardens and horticultural conservation work, Royal Botanical Gardens is working hard to preserve and restore the Nature Sanctuaries. Projects occur in forest, wetland and prairie habitats and range from Species at Risk inventories to invasive alien species management. Of particular importance is Project Paradise, the largest restoration project of its kind in North America, working to restore the aquatic habitats of Cootes Paradise and Grindstone Creek marshes.

Many conservation projects are underway. Click on the project names in the side navigation to learn more, or contact RBG for more information about our conservation programs.
