There are currently plans in the works to install an osprey tower in the open space beside Fairy Lake in Acton.

This project, which is being done to encourage biodiversity around Fairy Lake, is being planned by the Halton-North Peel Naturalist Club in partnership with Halton Hills Hydro, Credit Valley Conservation Authority and the Town of Halton Hills.

Osprey platforms provide potential habitat and nesting options for these birds and is set to be installed on Town property adjacent to the lake.

To limit the amount of maintenance vehicle activity in this area, the Town will be reducing the amount of maintained turf area through Acton Rotary Park.

Pathways through the area will continue to be maintained in order to allow pedestrian trail access to continue to Elmore Dr.

Additionally, Town staff is completing the removal of dead ash trees and will be planting new trees in fall 2022 through Acton Rotary Park and Prospect Park.

This project is being fully funded by the Halton-North Peel Naturalist Club in partnership with Halton Hills Hydro.

The work is expected to be carried out in the fall of 2022.
