On June 12, RBC volunteers immersed themselves in environmental activity with the help of Credit Valley Conservation (CVC). CVC hosted four volunteer events for 60 RBC volunteers in honour of the RBC Blue Water Project. Launched in 2007, the project gives funding to organizations dedicated to protecting water resources.
“Healthy communities rely on healthy water,” said Mike Puddister, Director of Restoration and Stewardship for CVC. “The RBC Blue Water Project aligns with CVC’s mission to protect this important resource now and for future generations.”
RBC volunteers planted 50 trees, pulled 60 pounds of invasive garlic mustard and removed hundreds of invasive buckthorn shrubs at two Mississauga locations: Meadowvale Conservation Area and Rattray Marsh Conservation Area. Volunteers improved the natural area at both sites through their hard work.
Water quality is important to the health of the Credit River watershed and everyone who lives here. CVC monitors and manages water resources through restoration efforts and ongoing improvement projects.

RBC volunteers are all smiles after improving the natural area.
Conservation Authorities are a provincial/municipal partnership. CVC was established by an act of the province in 1954 with a mandate to protect all natural resources other than minerals in the area drained by the CreditRiver. We have been working for 60 years with our partner municipalities and stakeholders to protect and enhance the natural environment of the CreditRiver watershed for present and future generations. CVC is a member of Conservation Ontario.
