Why we need your support
Hamilton Conversation Authority (HCA), a lead environmental management organization in the Hamilton area, needs our help.
While government funding supports administration and water management in the watershed, the work of HCA extends into many other areas such as outdoor education, recreation, environmental planning and land management, which impact the overall health of the watershed. Annually, the Authority must generate a significant portion of its operating budget through user fees and business initiatives. Fundraising helps to close gaps and enhance the work of HCA.
The Foundation helps to ensure the important conservation work of the HCA continues by raising awareness, funds and resources. We need your help to protect more natural lands now, and to teach our children to respect and understand their natural and cultural heritage, and the need to conserve it.
