LAKE ERIE NORTH SHORE WATERSHED PLAN Figure 25: Lake Erie 5 Subwatershed Restoration Strategy Study Area 164

LAKE ERIE NORTH SHORE WATERSHED PLAN Wainfleet Marsh Restoration Strategy The main watercourses in the Wainfleet Marsh subwatershed flow through woodlots and wetlands almost in their entirety before outletting to Lake Erie. The watercourses in this subwatershed have not been evaluated in terms of importance for fish habitat however the MNR has identified an important spawning area at the outlet in Lake Erie. In addition, the Lake Erie shoreline in this area has been identified as Fowler Toad habitat of which Niagara is one of only three areas in Canada where this SAR is found. The spotted turtle, a species of special concern, has also been identified in this subwatershed. No water quality sampling was conducted in this subwatershed. A geomorphic assessment was conducted at one site in this subwatershed. Bank instability was noted in the form of fallen vegetation and exposed roots along the watercourse. Channel widening seems to be the dominant process occurring due to the presence of leaning trees on either side of the channel, as well as trees and shrubs within the watercourse. Debris jams were also identified along this field site (NPCA 2009b). Opportunity in this subwatershed exists for infilling of natural areas and creation of corridor connections to adjacent natural areas creating a larger contiguous natural heritage block that would support a larger diversity of flora and fauna. The challenge in this subwatershed would be establishment of a sufficient riparian buffer along the final trunk of the watercourse before it outlets into Lake Erie. The Wainfleet Marsh Subwatershed Restoration Strategy identifies one zone with specific stewardship and restoration recommendations (Table 15 and Figure 26). 165
