A management plan is being developed for the conservation of the Fernwood Woodlot. The goal of management plans is to ensure the long-term sustainability of natural areas.
As part of management planning the City of Niagara Falls will be conducting a public consultation process. This will give you an opportunity to learn more about the Fernwood Woodlot as well as share your ideas for the future of this natural area.
The proposed management plan for the Fernwood Woodlot includes; nature trails (with possible boardwalks), signage (educational and rules), a neighborhood access sidewalk on Tapestry Court, hazard tree removal, an access at Garner Road (with possible gravel parking area), removal of non-native plants and shrubs, planting of native species, woodlot edge maintenance buffer and a long term monitoring program.
A public open house is being held on Tuesday June 30, 2015 from 6:30pm to 8:00pm at Fernwood Park (9260 Hendershot Bvd. Niagara Falls). If you are unable to attend this open house, please feel free to contact David Antonsen with your questions and thoughts about the Fernwood Woodlot by Friday July 10, 2015.
