A community-based conservation group has received a $16,310 grant to plant native trees and other vegetation along a stretch of the St. Lawrence Seaway near Cornwall, Ontario, according to the Seaway News.

The vegetation is to help restore natural riverbank habitat, which provides food and cover for wildlife.

The Raisin Region Conservation Authority received the grant from the Great Lakes Guardian Community fund, which is operated by the province’s Ministry of the Environment.

The fund gives out grants to community associations and other groups every year, including grants to the Toronto Zoo and the Walpole Island First Nation tribe.
