LAKE ERIE NORTH SHORE WATERSHED PLAN NPCA Natural Areas Inventory Sites In 2006, the Niagara Peninsula Conservation Authority initiated a comprehensive Natural Areas Inventory that was completed in partnership with the Regional Municipality of Niagara, local municipalities, Peninsula Field Naturalists and numerous other partners. The goal of the project was to use industry standard, scientifically-defensible protocols to inventory the natural areas in the NPCA watershed. The updated inventory will provide a solid resource of information to aid in planning decisions, policy development, and the prioritization of restoration opportunities. Four major aspects comprise the Natural Areas Inventory project, these include a Community Series Ecological Land Classification (ELC) Mapping; field verifications of vegetative communities to Vegetation Type (ELC); faunal inventories of for example birds, lepidoptera and odonata, herpetofauna, and lichens; and education. In total, over 500 properties were visited for ELC vegetation type assessments. The following descriptions of natural areas and associated mapping (Figures 13a and 13b) have been derived directly from the NPCA Natural Areas Inventory Report. For more information regarding the faunal inventories conducted during this study, please refer to the NPCA NAI Report. Site ID: HAL-01-00-00-00-00 Municipality: Haldimand County Subwatershed: Lowbanks Drain Approx. Size: 50 hectares General Summary: Study site HAL-01 is located along the Lake Erie shoreline and was primarily made up of swamp and marsh communities. The swamp community was dominated by Green Ash with associates. There are a total of 72 recorded taxa (unique plant records) for this site. This site is also in part designated as wetland and is awaiting evaluation in terms of significance. Name: Bunz Bush (Brady 1980) Site ID: WF-17-00-00-00-00 Municipality: Haldimand /Wainfleet Subwatershed: This study site drains east to Mill Race Creek, south to Hoover Drain and west to Lowbanks Drain. Approx. Size: 727 hectares General Summary: This very large study site is located south of the feeder canal and is bound by Lake Erie on the south, Townline Road in Lowbanks on the west and Sideroad 30 in Wainfleet on the east. The dominant community at this site is Green Ash Swamp. The swamps are underlain by clay loam soils that help them hold water and there are many large vernal pools. The properties visited also contained many high climbing vines. A second noted community is dominated by Poplar Swamp with the Green Ash Swamp in the lower lying areas. Throughout this community, there are drier knolls where the Poplars are the dominant species. The wetter areas of the swamp support 65
