The South Simcoe Streams Network (SSSN) is in its twelfth year of operation. This program continues to draw multi-sector and community support. The SSSN has developed innovative, action-oriented ways to improve and protect local stream environments through education, community involvement, and on the ground activities.
In 2020 the SSSN focused on fewer public events due to COVID, however was able to partner with the Nottawasaga Valley Conservation Authority (NVCA) and Dufferin Simcoe Land Stewardship Network (DSLSN) to begin work on a three-year Ontario Trillium Funding grant project called Connecting Community and Creeks Project. The SSSN together with NVCA were able to complete 1 km and .32 km² of stream restoration work and actively involved 173 volunteers and another key partner, Honda of Canada Mfg. With safety protocols in place, the SSSN engaged community volunteers to help install recycled evergreen for bank stabilization, remove log jams and undertake tree planting to enhance floodplain and wetland construction works.
