Three fundraising successes to celebrate!

Bottom: Friends of the Eramosa Karst support new plantings

Three groups warmed our hearts this winter season with their extraordinary generosity. Their donations will be put to work at the Dundas Valley CA, the newly planned East Escarpment CA and at the Eramosa Karst CA. The Foundation is lucky to enjoy the friendship and generosity of these community groups which help us do far more than we ever could on our own.

The Burlington Runners’ Club renewed their support for the Dundas Valley Trails Fund once again this winter with a donation of $12,000. The funds represent the proceeds of the Club’s annual Sulphur Springs Trail Run and help keep the sprawling 40km Dundas Valley Trail System in great shape year-round.

The Heritage Green Community Trust renewed their support for the new planned East Escarpment conservation area. The donation is part of a three-year pledge of $2 million to support HCA’s efforts to control flooding in Stoney Creek and establish a new conservation area.

The Friends of the Eramosa Karst presented the Foundation with the proceeds of their fundraising efforts in 2016. The Friends group is currently fundraising to establish new native species plantings along Second Road in the Eramosa Karst CA Feeder Lands.
