Other type of activity necessary or beneficial to the species

Activities will include census of populations of White Prairie Gentian, Showy Golden Rod, Pink Milkwort and Small White Ladies Slipper on Walpole Island First Nation; collection of sample leaves from White Prairie Gentian for genetic analysis; detailed measurements and collection of limited fruit capsules from Small White Ladies Slipper; and collection of small amounts of seeds from White Prairie Gentian, Showy Goldenrod, Pink Milkwort, Kentucky Coffee Tree and Common Hop Tree for propagation ex situ for the purpose studying seed viability, germination conditions and rates, and eventual planting of propagated plants to a protected tallgrass prairie / oak savanna / woodland restoration sites on the Walpole Island First Nation.

Issuing Authority: Environment Canada

Authority Used:

  • Species at Risk Act

Location of Activity (province, territory or ocean):

  • Ontario

Affected Species:

All activities will be carried out for the purpose of research and management under the Walpole Island Ecosystem Recovery Strategy. Knowledge of the species and threats to survival are essential for informed management and conservation. Impact to the species will be minimal to those species as located on the WIFN. Research is needed to better understand the biology and survival habitat of the species. The proposed monitoring and recovery research would fill those knowledge gaps.
