Provincial Agricultural Land Base and Natural Heritage System

Natural Heritage Map

The Greenbelt Plan, 2017 and Growth Plan, 2017 policies recognize the importance of both the Natural Heritage Systems and Agricultural System to the Greater Golden Horseshoe and the people of Ontario. The two overlapping systems are mutually supportive. The protection of these resources is vitally important to the long term vision for the Greater Golden Horseshoe.

Natural Heritage Systems are connected systems of natural features and areas and the lands and waters that link them together, including wetlands, fish habitat, significant woodlands, significant wildlife habitat and habitat of endangered and threatened species.

The Agricultural System identifies and protects a continuous, productive land base for agriculture across municipalities and provides support for the agri-food supply chain the sector depends on. The system, mapped and issued by the Province in accordance with the Growth Plan, 2017, is comprised of a group of interconnected elements that create a viable, thriving agricultural sector.

Warden's Tree Planting

County staff planting treesThe Green Legacyᴼᴹ Programme is responsible for organizing the Warden’s Tree Planting which has been an annual event for County and member Municipal staff since 2006.

The site chosen for the planting is located within the current Warden’s municipality when possible. Over the years, the plantings have occurred on privately owned lands, conservation authority lands, a municipal storm water management area, schools, local park, the County nursery, County landfill site and a religious retreat location. The types of plantings have ranged from farm windbreaks, living snow fences along roads, wetland buffers, conservation lands and urban parks. 

Staff appreciate the opportunity to volunteer their time and get out of the office to plant the trees. The 100 plus staff that attend this annual event have planted 2,000 - 3,000 seedlings at the sites over the years. Current years we have focused on planting larger potted stock. 

The Warden’s Planting is an excellent opportunity for building team spirit, fostering a land ethic and building our Green Legacy.

Wellington County Remembers: Our Cenotaphs Unveiled

Cenotaph ImageWellington County’s cenotaphs were built in the years following the Great War of 1914 - 1918, to commemorate the courageous men and women who paid the supreme sacrifice in that conflict. For a century, these memorials have served our communities as sites of gathering, celebration, remembrance, and mourning.

In November 2020, the Wellington County Museum and Archives launched Wellington County Remembers: Our Cenotaphs Unveiled, a virtual exhibit that maps the cenotaphs and tells the story of how each one came to be.
