We're installing a new bike pump track in the Vanier Park forest in a manner that ensures eagles will continue to nesting in the park.
The work currently taking place includes:
- A new bike pump track
- A permanent bald eagle nesting pole located to minimize disturbances to the birds
- Stewardship strategies for the forest include:
- Invasive species removal
- Garbage removal
- Planting longer living native trees, shrubs, and groundcovers
- Improved trails, signs, and environmental education
