John R. Park Homestead

ABOUT THE SITE


Location: Essex, Ontario

Landowner: Essex Region Conservation Authority

Seed Provider: St. Williams Nursery and Ecology Centre

About the site:

The John R. Park Homestead is part of the Fox Creek watershed, which meanders through the site, and drains into Lake Erie. There is a trail that borders the Creek, which is home to an assortment of native flora and fauna including species at risk such as Barn Swallows, Chimney Swifts, reptiles, amphibians and more. Three small plots of land (forest edge, prairie, and aquatic edge) will be converted to wildflower sites. By converting mowed sections of lawn to pollinator habitat, this eliminates long term grass maintenance and reliance on fossil fuels, while also offering new habitat for native pollinators.
