Dufferin Aggregates is committed to the responsible stewardship of the natural environment; actively seeking opportunities to create diversified and connected natural systems. Our progressive and award winning rehabilitation efforts are an ongoing activity at all of our sites, to recreate landforms for eventual uses such as conservation, recreation and agriculture.
Dufferin Aggregates runs an extensive biodiversity and restoration program across its quarries and pits in Canada. The Milton Quarry is a designated World Biosphere area and progressive rehabilitation has created new habitats for wildlife. More than one third of the area permitted for extraction has been restored to wetlands, meadows, lakes and wooded areas. Ongoing biodiversity monitoring shows that 120 bird species, 37 butterfly species and 6 amphibian species now use the rehabilitated area.
The Acton Quarry’s Ecological Enhancement Plan involves creating and enhancing forest, wetland, and grassland habitat over the next 15 years. As part of this plan, an amphibian breeding pool was created on site and 7 species of amphibians have been identified by a qualified ecologist.
We also run a seed collection program from our locations to enable replanting with species native to these locations.
