August 30, 2017 – Kawartha Conservation’s education program will benefit from a $2,000 Trans Canada Pipeline grant, thanks to the Kawartha Conservation Foundation.
The Foundation was notified earlier this summer that a grant application to support the popular education program at Ken Reid Conservation Area was successful.
“We have a strong mandate to support the vision and mandate of Kawartha Conservation, by raising funds, promoting awareness, and engaging the community to restore and sustain a healthy environment for future generations,” said Foundation Board Chair Julia Taylor.
Since 1996, the Foundation, formerly Friends of Kawartha Conservation, has successfully contributed to the programs and projects of Kawartha Conservation. Vital support has been garnered for conservation lands infrastructure, shoreline naturalization, and community awareness and education through active fundraising and successful grant proposals.
“As our education program continues to grow, both through curriculum-based programs, as well as one day and multi-day summer camps, the additional funds and support of the Kawartha Conservation Foundation is invaluable,” said Nancy Aspden, Coordinator, Environmental Programs/GIS Specialist.
“We are grateful to Trans Canada Pipeline for their generous grant,” continued Ms. Taylor. “Over the coming months we will be launching a number of fundraising initiatives and public awareness campaigns to draw increased visibility to the great work being done at Kawartha Conservation.”
