Biodiversity

Welcome to the Biodiversity page for the Dufferin Hi-Land Bruce Trail Club!

We recently established a committee to focus on how each of us as trail users can contribute to the Bruce Trail Conservancy’s mission of Preserving a ribbon of wilderness, for everyone, forever. Our Mission is “Biodiversity education through action and activities,” which we will address through Education and Stewardship.

We will continue to populate this page with resources and events, so return here often for current news. Activities generally focus on a specific habitat and target area. Their intentions range from removing invasive species to replanting native species. The Dufferin Hi-Land Club is planning several events in 2024. Dates and details will be posted on this site as they are finalized.

Find more resources on the Bruce Trail Conservancy site.

We look forward to seeing you on the trail!


iNaturalist Project

Join the Bruce Trail project on iNaturalist and collect biodiversity data. Cataloging your observations helps track invasive species, identify new species, and record native species. This provides detailed, relevant, and scientific data on which to base effective stewardship strategies.

Making this valuable contribution is as simple as downloading the iNaturalist app, joining the Bruce Trail Project, and uploading photos and audio recordings during your hike.

How to Limit the Spread of Invasive Species on the Bruce Trail

Invasive species are defined as non-native species whose introduction causes or is likely to cause economic or environmental harm or harm to human health. Invasive species are one of the top threats to biodiversity because they have few natural predators, reproduce quickly, thrive in disturbed systems, and can outcompete native species for food and habitat.
