The Cootes to Escarpment EcoPark System is a collaborative initiative to protect, restore and connect more than 1,900 hectares (4,800 acres) of natural lands at the western end of Lake Ontario. This is one of the most biologically rich areas of Canada, home to nearly a quarter of the country’s wild plants and more than 50 species at risk. It is also the last intact ecological connection between Lake Ontario wetlands and the Niagara Escarpment.

OPIRG McMaster is a proud supporter of Cootes to Escarpment. Staff member Randy Kay has been OPIRG’s representative on a stakeholder advisory committee since January 2008.
