Bill Filer

For more than 40 years my family lived on a 25 acre parcel of land in the heart of the Dundas Valley. Living here always took us away, providing the feeling that we were 1000 miles away from any urban city.

It’s very rare to have the gem that Hamilton enjoys with the Valley, we’re not making any more land and the priceless resource that is our natural space must be protected. Future generations rely on the efforts of volunteers and expert staff to maintain and improve the natural landscape.

Each of us has a responsibility to leave the land better than when we found it. My family and I contribute to the well being of conservation lands as part of my belief in giving back. We’ve aided in the planting of several thousand trees on the property in hopes that our legacy will be one of stewardship. We’ve been fortunate to spend much of our lives getting pleasure from the natural environment that has surrounded us and now we give to share the Valley with others.
