Point Pelee National Park has received a federal investment of $2 million to help restore the vitality of Point Pelee’s marsh, which will benefit both conservation efforts and visitor experience.

This collaborative project between Parks Canada and the Caldwell and Walpole Island First Nations, along with other regional experts, will support efforts to restore the diversity and overall health of the marsh.

The project will expand canoe routes, improving viewscapes, and provide increased educational opportunities for visitors.

Other infrastructure investment work, announced in 2018, was completed earlier this spring at the Marsh Boardwalk Area. This work included the replacement of 500 metres of the boardwalk with a new wood and metal design, installation of new slip-resistant tower steps, and the renaturalisation of some areas of the marsh to benefit fish, turtles, and other wildlife.
