Ontario Power Generation made a $331,740 donation for a tree planting project that will help sequester carbon dioxide. The project is a joint venture between Long Point World Biosphere Foundation (LPWBF) and the Long Point Region Conservation Authority (LPRCA). The donation will allow for 174,600 trees to be planted over the next two years. Ontario Power Generation's Carbon Sequestration and Biodiversity Management leads a habitat restoration program based on sequestering carbon dioxide through forestry. Over the past 10 years they have donated over $1 million toward reforestation. Bernt Solymar, president of the Long Point World Biosphere Reserve Foundation, said, "These restoration efforts are effectively contributing to habitat conservation of our plants and animals, promoting biodiversity, reducing the adverse effects of climate change, providing enhanced ecosystem services, and improving recreational opportunities for our community."
