York Bassmasters wins award for habitat improvement

The Ontario York Bassmasters won the 2011 Berkley Conservation Institute award for its members' work on the Bogart Creek Restoration.

Volunteers cleared garbage, old habitat structures and invasive plant species. They also planted new trees, took scientific sampling of the water bodies to identify fish species, and transplanted live largemouth bass into the creek. 

The York Bassmasters dedicated a total of 200 working hours to the project and raised more than $6,200.
