Ecological Restoration - Helping Our Land Heal


Natural Resource Management and Protection
Helping Our Land Heal

The Park Authority has a special program to restore natural areas on park lands called Helping Our Land Heal. Helping Our Land Heal rebuilds, repairs and maintains quality natural areas.

Work is conducted on several Helping Our Land Heal projects each year. The first of those was a pilot study concluded in 2015 at Ellanor C. Lawrence Park in Centreville. Work is being done at Old Colchester Park and Preserve guided by a Natural Resource Management Plan, and a new project began at Poplar Ford Park in 2016. The Natural Resource Management and Protection Branch of the Park Authority's Resource Management Division oversees these projects.
