Field studies resuming this spring
Environmental fieldwork to help guide Project design
We are continuing to undertake environmental fieldwork to help guide Project design. These studies are critical to helping us understand the environment where the Project is proposed. The data will be used to develop the upcoming environmental and impact assessment processes.
Aquatics studies will resume in April and will continue with each change of season through December. Boats will be on the water for several weeks at a time and may be observed in the general areas near the 4th Canadian Division Training Centre (4 CDTC) and the west end of Wasaga Beach.
Terrestrial field studies will resume on 4 CDTC in April and will continue through the summer and into the fall. Studies include various surveys for wildlife such as amphibians, reptiles, bats and birds. Vegetation studies will also be undertaken.
Archaeological investigations within 4 CDTC will resume in May and will continue through the summer and fall.
Protecting Georgian Bay as we develop this Project is our top priority. These studies will be included in the Project’s upcoming impact and environmental assessments.
We are committed to keeping the community informed of the studies being conducted and encourage you to reach out if you have any questions.
Your feedback matters
Valuable community feedback has led us to make significant Project design enhancements to protect the local environment and Georgian Bay. We host weekly community Coffee Chats so we can continue to hear directly from you. You can find out more and register for a Coffee Chat at PoweredByMeaford.com.
