LAKE ERIE NORTH SHORE WATERSHED PLAN small communities of Green Ash Organic Swamp with organic accumulation up to 55cm deep. There are a total of 130 recorded taxa for this study site. This site is also in part designated as Moulton Wetland West PSW and a portion of the identified wetland on this site is still waiting to be evaluated in terms of significance. Name: Harold Mitchell Nature Reserve Site ID: WF-18-00-00-00-00 Municipality: Township of Wainfleet Subwatershed: Mill Race Creek and Hoover Drain Approx.

It has a slough-ridge terrain with numerous ponds and open marshes. This site contains the last remaining stand of Hemlock trees along Lake Erie in the Niagara Region (The Nature Conservancy of Canada 1979). There is also a complex of freshmoist mixed meadow ecosite (MEMM4) that covers a smaller portion of the polygon or site, generally on the higher knolls. There are a total of 132 recorded taxa for this study site. This site is also in part designated as Harold Mitchell Nature Reserve LSW and partially falls within the boundary of Long Beach Conservation Area and the Gord Harry Conservation Trail. Name: Emerson Road Woodlot (Brady 1980) Site ID: WF-19-00-00-00-00 Municipality: Township of Wainfleet Subwatershed: This study site drains to Lake Erie via a number of drains. Approx. Size: 331 hectares General Summary: This study site is bounded by Concession 1 Road to the north, Lake Erie/ Lakeshore Road to the south, Station Road to the east, and Minor Road to the west. The majority of this study site is a typical slough forest community with complex microtopography. It was noted that the canopy is highly variable and successional. There was some standing water present at the time of the survey. The dominant species recorded include, Green Ash, Freeman‟s Maple, Red Maple, Red Oak, and White Elm. Other associates noted were Eastern Cottonwood, Swamp White Oak, and Willow. The understory was characterized by Gray Dogwood, Nannyberry, and Choke Cherry with some small Silver Maple or Shagbark Hickory. The herbaceous layer consisted of largely Spotted Touch-me-nots, Sedges, Thicket Creeper, Avens, and Goldenrods. Other noted areas were a complex mix of thicket swamps, marshes, and upland knolls of thicket. These areas were largely Narrow-leaved Meadowsweet, dominated with Gray Dogwood and Southern Arrow-wood as associates. The wet 66

LAKE ERIE NORTH SHORE WATERSHED PLAN pockets were characterized by Cattails and Willows. There are a total of 206 recorded taxa for this study site. This site is also in part designated as Emerson Road Woodlot /Lowbanks Backshore PSW Complex. The Gord Harry Conservation Trail also cuts across the top of this site. Name: Morgan‟s Point (Brady 1980) Site ID: WF-21-00-00-00-00 Municipality: Township of Wainfleet Subwatershed: Casey Drain and Mill Race Creek Approx. Size: 194 hectares General Summary: The site is bordered by Lake Erie to the south, Burnaby Rd. to the west, CNR tracks to the north, and Golf Course Rd. to the east. The town of Burnaby lies in the centre of the area. This area comprises 30 hectares of gently rolling terrain (Brady 1980) and for the most part is characterized by very rich upland forest communities. The most common was a Sugar Maple, White Ash community with Staghorn Sumac, and Black Raspberry. Shagbark Hickory was the dominant canopy species in some areas with an herbaceous layer of White Trillium, Herb Robert and some Garlic Mustard. Also noted was a very rocky area of the Onondaga Escarpment with vernal pools associated with changes in microtopography. In this area, the canopy was more fragmented with many dying White Ash. Some regeneration was noted along with a thicker shrub layer. There are a total of 209 recorded taxa for this study site. This site is also in part designated as Burnaby Wainfleet Airport PSW and LSW, Morgans Point Old Growth Forest, and Morgan’s Point Conservation Area. In addition, Gord Harry Conservation Trail cuts through a portion of the study site. Name: Fletcher Woodlot (Brady 1980) Site ID: WF-15-00-00-00-00 Municipality: Township of Wainfleet Subwatershed: Mill Race Creek Approx. Size: 167 hectares General Summary: The Fletcher Woods study site is located south of the Feeder Canal and the Village of Wainfleet. It stretches south of Concession 1 Road and is nestled between Sideroad 22 and Gilmore Road, west of where Highway 3 turns north towards the Village. Within the Green Ash swamp were drier knolls that supported a community of Red Oak, Sugar Maple and White Ash. Small depressions were found throughout this study site that held water for extended periods of time and therefore had no ground cover. A total of 29 taxa were recorded for this study site. Name: Wainfleet Wetlands – Eagle Marsh Drain (Brady 1980) Site ID: WF-22-00-00-00-00 Municipality: Township of Wainfleet Subwatershed: Wainfleet Marsh and Eagle Marsh Drain Approx.
