In an effort to reduce ATV incursions into Ruthven Park property the Lower Grand River Land Trust has built a series of anti-vehicle ditches. Stewardship Committee member Carol Desoer demonstrates their effectiveness.
Established in 1996, Haldimand Bird Observatory operates three stations: Selkirk Provincial Park, Rock Point Banding Station (both on the north shore of Lake Erie) and Ruthven Park near Cayuga, Ontario.
In spring, banding and a daily census are done from approximately the third weekend in March to the first weekend in June and, in fall, from the third weekend in July to the first weekend in November.
