Credit Valley Conservation Foundation (CVCF) is set to host its Spring Online Conservation Auction fundraiser from April 22 to 28, featuring an assortment of amazing items, just in time for Mother’s Day. This year when you bid on a gift for mom, you can also give a gift to Mother Nature. The annual online auction supports critical environmental projects in the Credit River Watershed.
CVCF’s Spring Online Conservation Auction features more than 40 brand name items including apparel, artwork, fine spirits and other indulgences, sports apparel and memorabilia. A full list of items is available at ConservationAuction.ca. To participate in the online auction, pre-register an e-bidder account and start browsing the catalogue.
In addition to bidding on auction items, participants can Fund-a-Need online which supports the Credit Valley Trail, a 100-kilometre pathway along the Credit River from the hills of the headwaters in Orangeville to Port Credit in Mississauga. Donations received through this year’s Fund-a-Need will help build and connect the remaining 68 kilometres of the trail and enhance the existing 32 kilometres.
“The past few years have taught us how important green space is for our physical and mental health,” said Karen Ras, Chair of CVCF. “Together, through our Fund-a-Need campaign we can ensure communities have access to world class green spaces close to home.”
The need for protected green spaces and outdoor recreational opportunities is more pressing than ever before. Access to parks and trails play a critical role in maintaining health and wellness. In 2021, over 1.14 million people visited a Credit Valley Conservation park location.
CVCF’s Spring Online Conservation Auction opens on Friday, April 22 at 9 a.m. and bids can be registered until Thursday, April 28 at 9 p.m. To learn more about items, register an e-bidder account or to participate in the Fund-a-Need for the Credit Valley Trail, visit ConservationAuction.ca.
The Credit Valley Trail project is led by Credit Valley Conservation in partnership with the City of Brampton, Town of Caledon, Town of Halton Hills, City of Mississauga, Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation, Town of Orangeville and Region of Peel. Core funding for the project has been generously provided by 407 ETR, CVCF, the Government of Ontario and the Greenbelt Foundation.
