Making Twelve

Mile Creek Healthier

One Landowner At A Time

  • Dedicated to working with community partners to preserve and enhance Niagara’s only significant coldwater stream.

DISCOVER THE PROJECT

Healthy Twelve Mile Creek is a stream restoration initiative of the Niagara Chapter of Trout Unlimited Canada with support from many partners and stakeholders to improve the Twelve Mile Creek watershed.

This landowner stewardship program works with private landowners and others in the headwaters of Twelve Mile Creek and its tributaries to help preserve, protect, and enhance the watershed. The health of the headwaters is critical to the quality of water flowing downstream from Pelham and Thorold through St. Catharines and into Lake Ontario.

Over 80% of the area within the headwaters is privately owned. Landowners' actions have the potential for major impact on the quality of the watershed.  By participating in this restoration work, landowners can help ensure the health of Twelve Mile Creek.

GET INVOLVED

Healthy Twelve Mile Creek aims to educate and encourage landowners to become ‘stewards’ of Twelve Mile Creek.

They can do so by working with us and restoration experts to create a plan for the improvement of the stream that runs through or adjacent to their land. Restoring watersheds takes time, commitment and community involvement, but the benefits of a healthy aquatic environment are easily worth the effort. You can also become involved as a volunteer for tree planting and other restoration work.

Stay up to date with all the great work we do.
