SNC unveils recreation site upgrades

There’s a new bridge in Russell Township, for the benefit of nature lovers everywhere.

Officials for the South Nation Conservation Authority (SNC) and the municipality gathered at the J. Henry Tweed Conservation Area, near the Village of Russell, December 5, for the official unveiling of various improvements to the nature area’s facilities, along with shoreline restoration work.

“We would like to thank Ontario Power Generation for helping to improve this public natural space in the community,” stated John Mesman, SNC Communications Lead.

Ontario Power Generation (OPG), through its regional biodiversity program, provided funding support to SNC for some of the work done in the fall. Included among the improvements were the resurfacing of the recreational trail, the installation of a new pedestrian bridge, the removal of trees marked as hazardous to public safety in the conservation area, the shoreline restoration to deal with erosion issues along the creek, and the removal of hundreds of ash trees, which were either dead or dying because of emerald ash borer infestation.
