EBC Site #10: Bates

Near Duntroon, Mantec Bates generously deeded this 34 acre property beside the Bruce Trail to the Escarpment Biosphere Conservancy.

There are a lot of ash saplings establishing from the thickets that may not make it over the next decade with the coming of the emerald ash borer. Only a handful of shrubs and small trees have been transplanted, but many more could be established as successional plantings.
