Brucedale Coastal Wetland Restoration

<< Back to project list

Brucedale Conservation Area, located North of Kincardine, is home to part of a rare coastal meadow marsh system. Over the past 20 years, invasive Phragmites australis has invaded the conservation area, reducing the transportation of sediment that feeds the once beautiful sandy beach, replacing suitable habitat for many species of bird, fish and reptiles, and impacting recreational activities for visitors of the area. Through restoration and educational outreach with residents and visitors to the areas, The Coastal Centre in partnership with Saugeen Valley Conservation Area, Enbridge and Environment and Climate Change Canada, are working diligently to remove the invasive Phragmites from the entire embayment and restore the coastal wetland.
