Every acre of Niagara Escarpment land conserved, every species within protected, every kilometre of the Bruce Trail secured, and every person inspired by the natural wonders that surround our communities, begins with you.
A donation to the Bruce Trail Conservancy will go towards the conservation of the natural areas that serve as habitats for wildlife, wetlands, open meadows, caves, towering scarp edges and lush forests – all within the Niagara Escarpment UNESCO World Biosphere. Your gift will also help us to steward these areas and engage with Ontarians about the importance of land conservation.
Be it financial, through a gift of land, a pledge, or in your will, when you choose to donate to the Bruce Trail Conservancy, you will be forever protecting this ribbon of wilderness for future generations to explore and discover – ensuring the natural legacy of the Bruce Trail lives on.
Our Commitment to You.
One of the most important gifts our members and supporters bestow upon us is their trust in managing the funds they donate. We take this responsibility very seriously. We hold ourselves to the highest standards of financial accountability and transparency because we know financial stewardship is key to achieving our conservation and fundraising goals, and fulfilling donor expectations. To do that, we ensure we have a strong internal control environment, effective governance over all operations, and an annual independent audit of our financial records.
If you’ve experienced the Bruce Trail, you know what a treasure it is. This treasure is made possible thanks to the ongoing support of Bruce Trail Conservancy members. Best of all, your membership helps us fulfill our mission, and provide safe, environmentally responsible, public access to the Niagara Escarpment for generations to come.
You can preserve a ribbon of wilderness,
for everyone, forever.
