Oak Ridges, Rouge National Urban Park, Greenbelt
World Biosphere Reserve nominated area

The Oak Ridges Moraine and Greenbelt (including the Rouge National Urban Park) combined cover 418, 920 ha of environmentally significant land including farmland, forests, wetlands, meadows, lakes, and rivers providing homes to thousands of plant and animal species including over 78 federally and provincially listed Species at Risk including the Jefferson Salamander, Redside Dace, Eastern Meadowlark and Blanding’s Turtle.


The Oak Ridges Moraine and Greenbelt were protected in 2002 and 2005 respectfully but with the added designation of World Biosphere Reserve so much more can be accomplished in these areas. A World Biosphere Reserve designation will help promote sustainable agriculture and provide livelihoods for farmers, increase ecotourism and sustainable tourism, increase awareness and social consciousness for stewardship, biodiversity, and good land management, promote communities to come together and develop programs that further understanding about conservation and sustainability, and can also increase the flow of local, technical and scientific knowledge about conservation.
