The Brampton Valley Naturalization Program commenced in 2002 and restores indigenous plant communities in the City’s valleylands, which have been impacted by past agricultural practices and development.
The program results in a variety of ecological benefits such as introducing new wildlife habitat, improving fish habitat by stream cooling, and flood plain stabilization.
The social benefits of the program are also significant as the new plantings add to the attractiveness of these valleylands, promoting casual use of the valleys by hikers, naturalists and community groups.
