One of the few silver linings of this seemingly interminable pandemic is that people continue to get outdoors in record numbers.
The growing number of visitors to Hamilton’s conservation areas offers us an opportunity to connect with new people, new groups and new communities. More than ever before, our neighbours see the value in protecting our natural lands and making sure they are there when we need them.
I want to deliver a sincere thank you to all of our donors whose vision and generosity have protected so many of the beautiful and diverse spaces. Places like the Dundas Valley, the Eramosa Karst and Canal Park simply would not be here to help us through these difficult times if it wasn’t for our donors.
Your generosity gives me hope for the future and our growing capacity to meet the daunting challenges ahead. The Saltfleet Conservation Area Wetland Project will be a key part of that. Your support has already helped to protect the lands necessary to move this project forward.
Before we ask our growing community of conservationists to help build these new wetlands, I want to thank those of you who had the vision to get us here. Your support matters more than you could possibly know.
