We believe that the quality of life in our community is enhanced through the protection, conservation, and wise stewardship of the Coves Subwatershed.

Organizational Objectives

The Coves Subwatershed Plan identified 59 recommendations for the protection, rehabilitation, and stewardship of the Coves Subwatershed.

These recommendations can be categorized into four main focus areas:

  • Public Access: enhance community enjoyment and appreciation of the Coves by bringing more lands into public ownership and by establishing trails
  • Stewardship: engage local landowners in adopting ecologically-friendly practices in their home and yard
  • Rehabilitation: enhance aquatic and terrestrial habitat and establish nature corridors that connect with neighbouring watersheds
  • Ecosystem Education: the active involvement of area schools, community groups, and service clubs in ecosystem conservation and protection

Typical Volunteer Opportunities

We typically need help with restoration work, such as:

  • Invasive species removal
  • Tree/shrub planting
  • Clean-up events
