Along the Eastern Lake Ontario Dunes & Wetlands Area recreational users were happy to meet and greet their stewards. It's becoming a tradition in some areas. As temperatures continue to climb and you seek the refreashing breeze along Lake Ontario or the Salmon River Reservoir, you are encourgaed to introduce yourself to your local steward; learn more about what it is that the stewards do, and what you too can do to be an informal steward of the natural resource areas that are important to you!
Salmon River Stewards Emily Freeman and Jim Katz plant stream willows that will provide streambank stabilization along the Salmon River.
