"Preserving a precious piece of Ontario for generations to come, and giving others the ability to enjoy what I have in my lifetime, is the legacy I want to leave behind."
"By supporting the Bruce Trail Conservancy in this way, it is a gift of magical moments to those who will enjoy the Bruce Trail in the future as we do today."
"We see the value in preserving the Trail permanently for many reasons: the experience of enjoying nature with friends and family, the importance of preserving local habitats, and the need to support a healthy climate."
"Gerda and Rudi Tismer were married in Germany in 1950. It was the beginning of a long love story that ended up with a real affection for the Bruce Trail."
"It feels good knowing we are helping to preserve this ribbon of wilderness, forever. There is nothing else like the Bruce Trail in Ontario, and very few trails like it in Canada. If we don’t take steps now to secure these precious places, we won’t have them in future."
"Sharing nature along the Trail with children, grandchildren and great grandchildren was, and is, an important and happy part of our family life. And the friends we have made through the Bruce Trail are invaluable. We could not ask for more as we age and our perspectives on what’s important in life evolve."
"My hope is that by saving the Niagara Escarpment, we will permanently protect irreplaceable habitats and species. we will pass on the joys we have experienced to future generations. And, we will ensure this ribbon of wilderness is protected forever and available for all to enjoy."
