Help Shape the Management Plans for the Clappison-Grindstone & Waterdown-Sassafras Woods Heritage Lands!

The Cootes to Escarpment EcoPark System is a collaborative initiative of nine organizations and agencies in the Burlington-Hamilton area (including municipal governments, conservation authorities and non-profit organizations). Together, these partner organizations are working to protect, connect and restore more than 1,900 hectares of natural lands, and to deliver sustainable recreation and education opportunities.

 Management Plans for the Clappison-Grindstone Heritage Landsand Waterdown- Sassafras Woods Heritage Lands are being developed in order to provide a coherent and holistic management framework for the partner-owned properties. Community and stakeholder engagement is an important aspect of plan development and implementation.

Come share your thoughts to help shape the Management Plans! During this first phase of consultation, community members will have the opportunity to learn about the Heritage Lands and tell us about key issues and opportunities within the study areas. The draft Inventory, Opportunities and Issues Reports for the two Management Plans are available for public feedback and can be found online at the following link: The second phase of consultation will take place in 2016 and will focus on the draft Management Plans.
