What do you think of as Hamilton’s most prized asset?

In your mind, how much is that asset really worth? How valuable will it be to your children and future generations?

Here in Hamilton we are blessed to be surrounded by some of the province’s most diverse and spectacular green spaces. It is difficult to calculate our green spaces’ economic impact, but it is even more difficult to imagine anything more valuable to our city’s health and sustainability. The fact that conservation pioneers worked to protect treasures such as the Dundas Valley, the Beverly Swamp, the Niagara Escarpment and the Eramosa Karst adds immeasurably to our quality of life and will continue to do so for generations to come.

With your support, Hamilton Conservation Foundation helps to protect more and more of these spaces each and every day. The Hamilton Conservation Authority is, in fact, the city’s largest landowner, nurturing over 4,400 hectares (10,872 acres) of waterfalls, forests, streams, meadows and wetlands. The changing climate, urban sprawl and our city’s rapid economic development make it more important than ever to protect these last remaining green spaces before they are paved over and lost forever.

We humbly ask that you make the most generous donation that you possibly can to the Foundation this fall. We promise you that it will protect and nurture an asset that will continue to benefit our city for generations to come.

Thanks for Supporting the Foundation at the Color Me Rad 5K


Color Me Rad 5k came to the Christie Lake Conservation Area on Saturday, October 19th and Hamilton Conservation Foundation was the event’s official charity! That meant that for every volunteer that signed up and worked a full shift, Color Me Rad made a $100 donation to the Foundation!

This is on top of the portion of ticket sales that they donated for those who registered with the promo code “GRASSLANDS”!

Our great friends MacGreen for Grasslands signed volunteers up and promoted the event in order to get closer to their target of $25,000 toward the EcoPark Campaign. Proceeds went to the acquisition of grasslands on York Road in Dundas just a few short minutes north of McMaster campus.
