Having established a conservation program shortly after
forming, HAFFT quickly developed a reputation for energetic volunteer-based
activities. Working with agencies such as the Hamilton-Wentworth Conservation
Authority, Ministry of Natural Resources, Department of Fisheries and Oceans,
Credit River Conservation Authority and the Grand River Conservation Authority,
HAFFT members have participated projects ranging from stream-side litter pickup
to tree planting. Members have stocked Atlantic Salmon from fry to adult. They
have transferred Brook Trout by electro-shocking and they have worked on
hundreds of meters of streambed to clear feeder springs and narrow channels to
aid in lowering water temperatures.
An agreement formed between Private Landowners and HAFFT, with the Hamilton-Wentworth Conservation Authority as a supervising agency, is being used as a model for similar co-operations.
