To secure these three areas and to support the associated programs to manage these lands and carry out other mission-based programs, the cost is $1.8 million.

A full $1million was committed to this goal early in the fall of 2016 from a generous bequest from Gerda Tismer, a grant from the Nature Conservancy of Canada, and a group of donors who wish to remain anonymous.

Since then others like you have followed their lead - giving generously to make these nature reserves a reality. 

Donate Today to ensure these vital pieces of land are forever protected and our conservation work can continue.

Your entire donation will be allocated to preserving and conserving more Escarpment land, and supporting the associated programs to manage these lands and carry out other mission-based programs. If donations to the profiled properties exceed the required funds, or if the BTC is not able to secure the profiled properties, your donation will be used to secure and steward other lands within the Bruce Trail's Conservation Corridor.

Each dollar has a meaningful and lasting impact on the preservation of our precious Niagara Escarpment landscape.
