Quinte Conservation is offering wildflower, shrub, and tree seedlings during the week of May 14-18 to


who reside within the Quinte Conservation watersheds

(Moira, Napanee, Salmon, Prince Edward County watershed regions).

Plants and their roots systems absorb wave and ice energy, stabilize soils and prevent erosion. Plants along the shoreline slow surface runoff and filter contaminants before they reach the lake, and help to slow the impacts of flooding and drought. Naturalized shorelines provide food and shelter for fish and wildlife species.

Species available in the mid-May will include:

Wildflower Pack (1 per landowner) that include Blue Flag Iris, Cardinal Flower, and Swamp Milkweed

Shrubs: Red Osier Dogwood, Steeplebush, Meadowsweet, Pussy Willow, Speckled Alder

Trees: White/Paper Birch, Balsam Fir, Balsam Poplar, Red Maple

The seedlings come in bundles of 3 to 5 and are in a soil plug form. They do need to be planted within one week of being received. They will arrive during the week of May 14-18.  You will be notified once they are ready by the Quinte Conservation office in Belleville.

Our Athol Councillor Jamie Forrester will be acting as pick up point for orders in the area of East Lake at his Log Point Cabins location.  However, ALL orders must be placed directly with Maya Navrot of Quinte Conservation.

Each property owner is welcome to 10-15 seedlings, of up to three or four different species plus one wildflower pack.  Quantities are limited. Please email your request to mnavrot@quinteconservation.ca.  Maya will also provide you with a workbook style information package that also highlights each of the species offered this year.

If you are interested in a large planting project on your shoreline, please contact Maya at mnavrot@quinteconservation.ca  or 613-968-3434 ext 131 to inquire.  There are numerous programs waterfront property owners can utilize to help cover costs to plant their shorelines.
