It has been estimated that more than 50% of the federally-listed species at risk occur in Ontario’s Carolinian Zone. Throughout this region, pressures from urban expansion, increased industrialization and intensified agricultural practices have caused extensive wildlife habitat destruction.

In parts of this zone, over 90% of the original forests are gone. Most of the remaining forests are too small and isolated to accommodate at-risk forest bird species and other species that depend on the specialized habitats found in larger forest tracts.

The Métis Women’s Circle in partnership with Ryerson United Church and Foundations Montessori School are hosting an information evening at 265 Wilson St. East in Ancaster on Friday, May 27th, 7pm, showcasing student art and their research on Carolinian species.
