Thanks to hundreds of donors, Lower Valley Road Nature Reserve will be added to the Bruce Trail's Conservation Corridor!
A new nature reserve has been created in the Beaver Valley thanks to Bruce Trail Conservancy (BTC) donors. Understanding the great need, BTC donors generously and quickly responded to protect the 67 acre Lower Valley Road Nature Reserve, in the beautiful Beaver Valley.
BTC donors appreciate the critical importance of preserving large tracks of land like the Lower Valley Road Nature Reserve, and this acquisition will be a part of a 13 km corridor of permanently secured Bruce Trail in the southern portion of the Beaver Valley. The Nature Reserve is beautiful; its lush wetland feeds the Boyne River and massive maturing hardwood forest offers a spectacular display of colour in the Fall. The Lower Valley Road Nature Reserve will now forever stand as an oasis for plants, animals, birds and people seeking sanctuary in Canada's most populated province.
This latest fundraising effort was supported by a $100,000 gift from the Dalglish Family Foundation. In addition to the Foundation's generous gift, individual donors contributed over $365,000 to ensure this critical Niagara Escarpment landscape remains in its natural state for everyone to benefit from in perpetuity. Thank you to all that contributed to this important land acquisition. Your gift will stand as a natural legacy for future generations to enjoy.
