New East Escarpment property unveiled as Saltfleet Conservation Area

An enthusiastic group of donors and community members attended an October 14th celebration revealing the name.

The core of the Saltfleet Conservation Area, located south of the Dofasco 2000 Trail on the east side of First Road East in Stoney Creek is a 99 hectare parcel of land. Unlike most of HCA’s conservation areas, this area does not yet feature trails, pavilions and recreational amenities.

The area was formed in the early stages of what is a decade-long $10 million project which will see engineered wetlands and stream restoration projects along Battlefield and Upper Stoney Creeks upstream from the Niagara Escarpment.
