Saltfleet Conservation Area
Saltfleet Conservation Area (Saltfleet) is comprised of six properties on top of the Niagara Escarpment in Stoney Creek. HCA acquired the lands following a 2011 Environmental Assessment of the area, with the vision of creating multiple wetlands to address flooding and erosion below the Niagara Escarpment in urban Stoney Creek, as well as providing both new and restored natural areas in the watershed and opportunities for passive recreation.
Wetland construction at Saltfleet is now underway on the land parcel situated between First and Second Road East. This property will be the main focus of the Master Plan, since it will contain the conservation area’s anticipated long-term main entrance, parking area, day-use facilities, and recreational trails.
This will be HCA’s first Master Plan for the Saltfleet Conservation Area.
