We’ve been called many things but a ‘roving band of environmental do-gooders’ is perhaps our favourite!
Recently, In the Hills magazine listed our upcoming Stewardship Forum fall bus tour as one of their favourite picks for autumn 2015. What an exciting endorsement!
Each year we organize a Stewardship Forum that focuses on important and timely topics that have a significant role in the health of our environment. Our mission is to bring people together, make a connection to the local community and showcase the positive work that is improving nature.
This year our Stewardship Forum takes us to the Headwaters region, an area known for its beauty. That’s why it’s the perfect fit for a fall bus tour. Our Nature to Conserve: Exploring the Headwaters takes place on October 3 from 8:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., and gives participants an opportunity to enjoy the beautiful fall colours of Caledon and Orangeville.
Our day starts with a keynote address from Jon Riley, Chief Science Advisor to the Nature Conservancy of Canada and Headwaters resident. Riley authored the book The Once and Future Great Lakes Country.
The tour features stops at Island Lake Conservation Area, Upper Credit Conservation Area and Whole Village in Caledon, just to name a few. Stops showcase environmental restoration projects, low impact development practices and successful community initiatives.
This tour is perfect for budding environmentalists, nature enthusiasts, amateur photographers or anyone who may be curious about the work that’s happening in their community.
Registration is open until September 25. To learn more, visit http://www.creditvalleyca.ca/learn-and-get-involved/stewardship-forum/
