The Nottawasaga Valley Conservation Authority is hosting a Giving Tuesday campaign to raise $10,000 in support of their programs.

NVCA is a charity dedicated to the preservation of a healthy environment. In total, there are nine departments that work together to maintain a healthy watershed and protect the land against flooding and erosion

“We have many programs worth donating to, such as maintaining nature trails, providing environmental education, and ensuring the rivers and streams within our watershed are healthy,” said Doug Hevenor, Chief Administrative Officer of NVCA.

The NVCA completes projects like environmental restoration work such as tree planting and river restoration. These programs lead to healthier fish and wildlife habitat, as well as better water quality.

NVCA would not be able to run these programs without the help of grants and donations.

Keeping the public safe from hazardous trees while completing trail maintenance have always been a priority for the NVCA. Accessible boardwalks, bridges, washrooms and interpretive signage are all part of a positive visitor experience.

In 2021, six new environmental education programs were created to offer even better learning opportunities to the youth in our watershed.

“From everyone at NVCA, we would like to thank you for your generosity,” Mr. Hevenor said. “We are humbled by the donations and volunteer hours that have been contributed so far. Your support has allowed us to help meet your needs within our natural world. I look forward to a successful Giving Tuesday campaign to continue to this important work.”

The Giving Tuesday campaign will take place on Tuesday, November 29, 2022.

You can learn how to donate by visiting the website at www.nvca.on.ca.

If you can’t donate financially, the NVCA encourages you to consider donating your time through the organization’s volunteer opportunities.
