In partnership with the Region of Durham, Toronto and Region Conservation Authority (TRCA), and Ducks Unlimited Canada (DUC), the Town of Ajax will be undertaking a large wetland restoration project within the Carruthers Creek watershed. The Kerrison Road Wetland Restoration Project was identified as a restoration priority in the Carruthers Creek Watershed Plan.

The project will expand marsh wetland habitat through site grading, decommission of remnant farm ponds, and extensive native tree and shrub plantings. The restoration will also stabilize existing stream bank erosion sites as well as address and manage invasive species found on site.

In total, the Kerrison Project will create and enhance approximately 2.5 hectares (6 acres) of wetland and 6 hectares (15 acres) of riparian plantings. That is the equivalent size of over 50 NHL-sized hockey rinks!

The majority of this project is being funded through the Investing in Canada Infrastructure Program (ICIP): COVID-19 Resiliency Fund.
