Caring for the Moraine

The Oak Ridges Moraine is an ecologically important geological landform in the plains of south-central Ontario, Canada. The moraine covers a geographic area of 1,900 square kilometres. The Oak Ridges Moraine’s hydrological system is a major constituent of the Humber Watershed supplying water to significant parts of Toronto, Canada, so that any factors affecting the moraine may have an impact on a major population centre.

COMAP  has also developed a Web-based system for the Caring for the Moraine project of the Oak Ridges Moraine Foundation. The Caring for the Moraine project enables 30 conservation-minded organizations to offer land-owners technical advice and access to various resources to undertake projects on their properties that help protect and restore the Oak Ridges Moraine. Land owners are able to access this information and also determine the land use designation, conservation priorities and available conservation resources for their properties. The system also supports communication among the various concerned groups who will be able to publish and post their news, events, exemplar projects and photos securely to a temporally and spatially searchable collaborative map of the Oak Ridges Moraine.
