The Maple Leaf Cemetery Tall Grass Prairie Project was a partnership between the Municipality of Chatham-Kent Parks and Cemeteries, the Lower Thames Valley Conservation Authority, the Rondeau Watershed Coalition, and John McGregor Secondary School.
Approximately 2 hectares of tall grass prairie were established in 2010. This was the initial site that began the Pollinator Enhancement Program for the Lower Thames Valley Conservation Authority and the Greening Partnership.
The Pollinator Enhancement Program has since grown to include two private prairie sites (McMullen and Mitton properties) as well as the Merlin Prairie site slated for 2012. Prairie installments can also be found at C.M. Wilson Conservation Area.
