Community Stream Steward Program
Ontario is widely known for the large quantity of freshwater found in the province's lakes, streams, and wetlands. Coldwater streams in particular provide vital habitat to many plants and animals, some of which can only be found in these environments. Across the province (and beyond!) many of these streams are being unintentionally impacted by human activities and sensitive species are being lost.
The Community Stream Steward Program (CSSP) is a non-profit organization that seeks to help preserve and enhance coldwater habitats on public and private properties. We work alongside landowners, communities, youth, volunteers and other stewardship organizations to enhance stream and wetland environments. We accomplish this by identifying, planning and implementing a wide variety of restoration projects and activities. We also take part in a large number of education and outreach events aimed at increasing awareness and understanding of the importance of coldwater systems.
Landowners, communities, and volunteers who are interested in learning more about the streams on their property can visit our website below for more information about free site visits, restoration project planning, available funding, and other resources we can provide.
