Revitalized eco-system

Twenty years ago, the stretch of land between Lamoureux Park and the bridge to Cornwall Island was a brown wasteland where the natural ecosystem had been stripped away by industrial pollution.

Then, in 1997, the Raisin Region Conservation Authority with funding from the Cornwall Rotary Club put in the rushing creek that exists there today in an effort to restore the original ecosystem. This area would then became known as the Rotary Eco-Gardens.

Two decades later, on Sunday, Transition Cornwall+ Tree Action Arbre organized a guided tour of the eco-gardens with one of the scientists who originally spearheaded the project. Organizer Susan Towndrow said the walk was about admiring the handiwork of all the people who worked hard to revitalize the riverside ecosystem.
