Stewardship Action Plans for Borer’s, Logie’s and Sydenham Creeks
The subwatersheds of Borer’s, Logie’s and Sydenham Creeks are primarily rural, however they are also relatively urbanized in comparison to other subwatersheds of Spencer Creek and therefore have been identified as being of high priority for stewardship action. These subwatersheds are predominately located on top of the Niagara Escarpment but do reach down below the escarpment.
Our daily activities can have harmful effects on these ecosystems. Some of these effects are already evident in the subwatersheds of Borer’s, Logie’s and Sydenham Creeks, but if everyone works together then we can help to heal our environment for today and future generations.
The Action Plans identify environmental stresses affecting these ecosystems and include Stewardship Actions to prevent these harmful impacts and to restore areas that have already been affected.
In 2008, the Hamilton Conservation Authority, in cooperation with local agencies, businesses and residents, developed environmental Action Plans for these subwatersheds of Spencer Creek.
The Action Plans identified numerous environmental stresses in these areas including occurrences like: contaminated runoff from roadways, encroaching landscaping into our natural areas, habitat fragmentation, on-line ponds, insufficient riparian buffers, etc. Stewardship Actions relating to education outreach, scientific studies and habitat restoration were developed to help alleviate these problems.
