Let's take care of our land of plenty!

The Pays de Cocagne Sustainable Development Group's (PCSDG) mission is to engage citizen participation towards the sustainability of Cocagne watershed communities
There are many valuable resources to help landowners with riparian and shoreline restoration projects. Through the Cocagne Watershed Natural Heritage Conservation Project, the GDDPC has compiled a list of available ressources. Here are just a few examples.

Species at Risk Voluntary Stewardship Practices : Guidance for Restoration Activities in Riparian Areas (2013), Stewardship Centre for British Columbia - themes explored include planting native vegetation; installing large woody debris; creating pits and mounds; creating riparian wetlands.

A living shoreline project : living edge approach to landscape management (2013), Lohnes, R., English - examples of a restoration project with many pictures.

Ecological restoration of degraded habitats : A watershed approach (2006), Fisheries and Oceans Canada (DFO) - instream cover; bank stabilization.

The Shore Primer : A Cottager’s Guide to a Healthy Waterfront (2008), Fisheries and Oceans Canada - protecting a natural shoreline; various restauration techniques.
