Driftwood Cove, Fisher's Pond, Tall Timbers and East Mountain represent an expansive mix of landscape that showcase the very breadth of the Bruce Trail Conservancy's land preservation work; from rugged, isolated shorelines and cliffs on Georgian Bay, to expansive rolling landscapes in Burlington that offer unfettered views of Toronto's skyline; from sweeping meadows and rocky uplands in the Beaver Valley, to a silent, green cathedral-like forest near Hockley Valley.

The cost to secure this land, and to support the associated programs to manage these lands and carry out other mission-based programs, is more than $3 million. Our generous donors have already contributed an inspiring $2 million.

We need your help to raise the remaining $1 million required to preserve these lands and care for them and the Bruce Trail in perpetuity.


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.
