Eco Durham


Durham is abundant with natural features: creeks that flow from the Oak Ridges Moraine, the shores and sandy beaches of Lake Ontario, the forested areas of Durham Regional Forest that sits just south of Uxbridge, Altona Forest in Pickering, and the wetlands of Second Marsh in Oshawa, to name a few.

Human activity continues to work in contrast with the natural beauty of the area, and is something that came up with every person interviewed for this book, and on just about every website referenced for information. Urban sprawl is often frowned upon, as more and more development ensues and natural areas, home to many natural species and wildlife, are destroyed to make way for people moving in.

This book, however, will show that the voices standing up
for nature, and with a will to keep Durham beautiful, are just as strong. There are people, committees and organizations committed to ensuring that Durham’s natural heritage system stays beautiful, healthy and strong.
