Windsor Airport as seen from above on Google Maps

Windsor Airport lands will be getting a lot greener in the coming weeks.

Portions of these lands, which are identified by the Ministry of Natural Resources as the Airport Swamps, have been identified as Provincially Significant Wetlands. Over 67 plant species and at least 27 breeding bird species have been identified in the rich forest community.

“All of these elements make this forest very special, and the work of these young people here today is the first step the overall project,” explained ERCA Vice-Chair Percy Hatfield.

In total, 5700 trees will be planted and 8.5 acres of habitat restored to connect these forests.  Once complete the  forest will measure nearly 100 acres.
