  • Chappus restoration area (numerous sites between Malden and Matchette Roads, north of Armanda Road)
  • Gratiot restoration area(at former Gratiot and Huron Church Road intersection)
  • Reddock restoration area (at former Reddock and Huron Church Road intersection)
  • Oakwood Bush area (near South Windsor Arena)

  • St. Clair Street area (south of Highway 3, across from St. Clair College)

Prescribed burns will be undertaken and monitored by trained professionals with extensive experience, under very specific controlled and safe conditions taking into consideration wind speed and direction as critical factors. The burn period for each site is of limited duration.
