Owl Woods Project Update

Out of growing concern over the impact people are having on Amherst Island’s Owl Woods, working with the various landowners and stakeholders,the Kingston Field Naturalists began a project to find ways to minimize this impact. We produced a management strategy for the property. The document we produced is considered as a guide and a springboard for ideas rather than a rule book. Implementation of the recommendations began with the formation of the Friends Of the Owl Woods in Summer 2011. Following the strategy the Friends have now completed work on new interior signage, the fencing off of an owls-only zone within the Woods and a new welcome Kiosk at the entrance on the CRCA property. This kiosk displays the rules and provides a map as a reminder that the majority of the Woods is privately owned. Please respect this privately owned wildlife sanctuary, the owls and follow the posted rules.
