Greater Sudbury is one of those rare places where one generation has passed on a better environment than it inherited. The combined impacts of logging, open air roasting of ores, and smelter emissions in the Greater Sudbury area from the 1890s to the 1970s resulted in extensive rock barrens devoid of vegetation. However, environmental concerns led to pollution controls and land reclamation in the 1970s. Today, many damaged areas have been revegetated as part of the City of Greater Sudbury's Regreening Program and Greater Sudbury is recognized as a world leader in the environmental restoration of mining landscapes. The Jane Goodall Reclamation Trail provides a self-guided tour of one such reclamation site. The trail is named for Dr. Jane Goodall, an environmental advocate who has travelled around the world to increase awareness and appreciation for the environment. Dr. Goodall planted an oak tree on this trail in 2001.
