Give a Little Green this Holiday Season
LSCF launches fundraising campaign with Mini Documentary
It's no secret that 2020 is a year unlike any other and one that most of us would like to forget. But dark clouds often bring silver linings, and bad experiences can teach us powerful lessons, like the importance of a healthy natural environment to our own physical and mental well-being. This Holiday Season, Lake Simcoe Conservation Foundation invites you to “Give a Little Green" for a sustainable and healthy Lake Simcoe for future generations.
The “Give a Little Green" campaign's goal is to raise $50,000 by the end of 2020 to solidify Foundation support for LSRCA programs and projects. In the last five years, the Foundation has supported over 60 programs and projects in the Lake Simcoe watershed to help improve the local environment. The mini documentary showcases six of these projects/programs, all while taking in stunning views of the Lake. The projects featured include:
- Aquatic plant monitoring (weeds!) in Lake Simcoe
- Reducing surface water run-off at Goodyear Farm in Beaverton
- Meadow restoration project at Rogers Reservoir in East Gwillimbury
- Fish barrier removal project at Sheppard's Bush in Aurora
- Forest School at Scanlon Creek Conservation Area
- Online pond removal at Pangman Springs in Whitchurch-Stoufville
“The Foundation has been an extremely important partner to the Authority for years. They raise money for us to do projects and to keep our educational programs going. They are essential." - Mike Walters, CAO, Lake Simcoe Region Conservation Authority.
“I think we can all agree that 2020 is a year that we'd like to all forget. So many charities have had financial challenges like never before due to the pandemic. However, one thing to come out of this is the realization that nature is so important to our well-being and will be vital in our recovery from COVID-19." Cheryl Taylor, Executive Director, LSCF
