Working to Protect Ontario’s Headwaters, Natural Heritage, and Watersheds
The OHI is project based. In general, concepts emerge in verdent catchments and trickle in to one of our three upstream channels – Research, Education, or Civic Engagement.
Richly oxygenated by cascading over natural and constructed obstacles, the research stream gathers volume and forms submissions or efforts such as OHMapping; parts of the education rivulet are distilled into Headwater Hikes, the OHI YouTube Channel, or What Can I Do; and the civic engagement current gathers input from local ponds and becomes WaterScape, focused on sustainable planning in South-central Ontario, or Headwater Alliances. New precipitation, meanwhile, adds to the water budget and irrigates various seeds into other Emerging Projects.
Here is a guide and links to the project reservoirs:
Watershed Management – Provides links and a backgrounder on this topic;
WaterScape – Our civic engagement project to ensure resilient landscapes and healthy waters in South-central Ontario;
What Can I Do? – Describes what individuals and organizations can do to help protect water;
Headwater Alliances – Seeks to facilitate groups working together to protect regional headwaters; and,
Emerging Projects – Seeds and seedlings that might blossom downstream.
