The Saugeen Valley Conservation Foundation raises money every year for various conservation environmental projects that are deemed a priority by both the SVCF and Saugeen Conservation.
The following are projects, new initiatives and ongoing endeavours of the Saugeen Valley Conservation Foundation.
Development of a trail system in this, the single largest forested wetland in Southern Ontario. The proposed 7.4km trail will lead visitors through some of the richest habitats in and around this vast wetland. Interpretive signage is also included, highlighting the colourful history of this unique complex.
We continue to raise money for this incredible initiative as this site becomes more popular! At the present time, we are attempting to incorporate additional interpretive and directional signage to provide visitors with detailed information about this unique wetland.
Stay tuned for updates!
