The Credit Valley Conservation Foundation (CVCF) is asking for your help once again in its latest bid for a $50,000 grant in the FuellingChange™ program, presented by Shell Canada. The newest project is in support of the Credit River Clean Water Campaign and will be directed toward construction of community rain gardens. 

“We are thrilled to be included in Shell Canada’s latest project under the FuellingChange program,” said Terri LeRoux, Executive Director, Credit Valley Conservation Foundation. “This is another great opportunity for us to do important work in our community with assistance from Shell customers. This project will help protect water quality of the Credit River, which flows to Lake Ontario, the source of drinking water for millions of people.”

This latest grant opportunity will allow Credit Valley Conservation to construct and install one of its innovative water technologies – rain gardens to help ensure abundant, safe, clean water. Rain gardens are an effective way of controlling stormwater run-off by collecting rain water from roofs, driveways and yards, allowing it to filter through plants and soils as it flows back into the ground.

Shell Canada’s latest FuellingChange™ program runs until April 30, 2013 and is part of a larger commitment to empower Canadians to make a difference in their communities with $2 million a year in support of environmental projects across Canada.  To learn more about the Credit River Clean Water Campaign visit http://www.fuellingchange.com/main/project/390/Credit-River-Clean-Water-Campaign.

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 Credit River. We have been working for almost 60 years with our partner municipalities and stakeholders to protect and enhance the natural environment of the Credit River Watershed for present and future generations.
