The Bay Area Restoration Council is a non-profit community stakeholder group devoted to the revitalization of Hamilton Harbour and its watershed.
About BAY AREA RESTORATION COUNCIL (BARC)
The Bay Area Restoration Council (BARC) is at the centre of citizen efforts to restore and protect the ecosystem health of Hamilton Harbour and its watershed. A community non-profit group, BARC also functions as a watchdog organization, assessing and promoting the clean up projects for the bay. Local stakeholders and governments follow a clean up strategy, created by the community, called the Remedial Action Plan (RAP). Continued commitment to the plan is essential to achieve habitat restoration, public accessibility and improved water quality goals.
Involving the community in harbour issues requires public participation and membership support. The Bay Area Restoration Council delivers school programs, guided harbour tours and lecture series.
