“A thing is right when it tends to preserve the integrity, stability, and beauty of the biotic community. It is wrong when it tends otherwise.” -Aldo Leopold
The Ontario Plant Restoration Alliance is committed to conserving and enhancing native plants populations through the salvage and propagation of local seed.
We are a not-for-profit organization, working with conservation stakeholders at a regional scale to achieve native plant restoration goals.
We officially launched in 2016 with the formation of the Hamilton Seed Strategy for conserving and enhancing the unique flora of this region. Our cooperators on this project include the Hamilton Conservation Authority and the Royal Botanical Gardens.
Our work has been endorsed by the North American Native Plant Society, and the Toronto Botanical Gardens.
OPRA welcomes new members and is always happy to collaborate with conservation partners to help facilitate local seed banking and plant restoration programs
