As concerned citizens of our community, you can help in conserving renewable natural resources through a donation of artefacts, land or in a monetary fashion. Volunteering your time, enthusiasm and creativity would also be welcome.
The LCF currently has several programs and projects underway. Citizens can participate in the Blake Memorial Grove program and have a tree planted in memory of a departed loved one. Over 4.000 trees have already been planted.
The LCF has helped with improvements to facilities at Conservation Areas, such as Mission Island Marsh and Little Trout Bay Conservation Areas. The Foundation raised over $100,000 for construction of the new Hazelwood Lake Nature Centre in 1997.
We funded trail and facility improvements at Cascades Conservation Area. A pavilion, interpretive displays, trail maps and washroom have been installed. In 2002, landscaped steps were installed at some steep trail sections, two bridges were placed over a small creek and a handicap-accessible trail loop was paved.
