This is a collection of essays and other documents relevant to understanding human occupancy of a rural municipality in Eastern Ontario. The first essay explicitly deals with local land-use... More > planning, the next with two local species that indicate the need for such planning, and the middle seven with reflections on the current Ontario system of land-use and ecological principles relevant to particular organisms or habitats. Then The Lawn Care Manual draws lessons from government strictures on ecological planning, and applies them to the immediate surroundings of a homesite.
