Lake Simcoe Watershed Natural Vegetation Cover Monitoring Program
Welcome to the Project
In the Lake Simcoe watershed, most of the remaining natural land cover is on private property, and sampling from these areas is therefore essential if we are to obtain an accurate and complete picture.
If a potential monitoring location has been identified on your property, you may have received a letter or phone call requesting permission to visit and sample its vegetation. We hope that you will choose to participate in this exciting project. Permission from private landowners has been extremely valuable for the continued progress and success of the research project year to year.
By allowing us to sample on your property, you will be:
When the next set of field sampling is scheduled, you will be notified by phone and/or mail prior to the beginning of the field season, and no one will enter your property without prior permission.
We will not sample on private land without permission, and the data collected will be pooled (specific information about private properties is kept confidential, but is freely available to the landowner).
To give us permission to survey on your land this summer, please e-mail us your name, address, permission information, and any restrictions or concerns:
