To improve functionality and access to information, Credit Valley Conservation (CVC) has redesigned its website www.creditvalleyca.ca. To celebrate the official launch of the new website, on Nov. 2 CVC is inviting residents to take part in an online scavenger hunt to win a one-year family pass with unlimited access to 10 unique and bio-diverse conservation areas

Throughout 2011, CVC made significant upgrades to www.creditvalleyca.ca. Because information about conservation areas consistently ranks as a top traffic driver for the website, improvements were made in this section, including: interactive maps; photo galleries; search ability; and ability to filter conservation area information by activity.

Information about flood warnings, public safety bulletins and community events were enhanced through website layout, usability, accessibility and aesthetics. Visitors to the site can continue to learn about CVC programs and services; news and events; and job opportunities. The new website includes a comprehensive reference library and better access to CVC’s social media accounts – Facebook and Twitter.

To take part in the scavenger hunt, a series of multiple choice questions will lead contestants through various sections of the site to search for clues. The grand prize winner will be chosen at random from correct entries, with second and third prizes of CVC swag awarded as well.

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 over 50 years with our partner municipalities and stakeholders to protect and enhance the natural environment of the Credit River Watershed for present and future generations.
