FCA Windsor Assembly Increases Meadow Habitat

On Sunday, October 1st, FCA Canada’s Joint Workplace Environment Committee (JWEC) partnered with the Essex Region Conservation Authority (ERCA) and the Detroit River Canadian Cleanup (DRCC) to create more meadow habitat in Windsor. Over 100 volunteers attended this event to plant native grasses and wildflowers and their seeds along a new section at the Grand Marais restoration site.

Over the past 10 years, Unifor Local 444 and FCA Canada management staff from the Windsor Assembly Plant have planted over 1000 native trees, shrubs, grasses and wildflowers at various sites around the facility for butterflies and other wildlife. With funding support of over $60,000 from the DRCC, planting expertise provided by ERCA, and the muscle of the Windsor Assembly employees, this decade long partnership has contributed significantly to restoration efforts within the Detroit River watershed.
