DONATE TODAY TO DIRECTLY SUPPORT:

Connecting Kids with Nature
The Island Lake Natural Playground, currently under construction at Island Lake Conservation Area in Orangeville, will provide a 1.17 acre nature-inspired space for children of all ages to connect and engage with nature. The design includes natural elements, an accessible trail loop with play pods, and other built-in play structures for a wide variety of sensory experiences and play opportunities. Your donation to the Island Lake Natural Playground will help complete this innovative playspace to connect children from across the Credit River Watershed and beyond with nature! 

Connecting Youth with Nature
The Conservation Youth Corps (CYC) program provides a wide range of hands-on environmental stewardship and educational programming for high school students across the Credit River Watershed. CYC supports leadership and career skills development for youth to pursue post-secondary education and careers in the conservation field. Your donation will help connect youth from across the Credit River Watershed with nature and inspire the next generation of environmental leaders! 

Protecting Land, Water, & Wildlife
In the heart of Caledon along the upper stretches of the Credit River, is the Capstone property, featuring 44-acres of land that is critical to protecting nature and wildlife. Securing this land will allow public access to Charles Sauriol Conservation Area, protect critical brook trout habitat, and is a vital part of creating the Credit Valley Trail. Partially forested with the Credit River meandering through, this property includes stunning cedar forests and incredible biodiversity – a true natural jewel that needs to be protected – now, and forever. Your donation to the Capstone property will help protect land, water, and wildlife in the upper Credit River Watershed! 

Creating the Credit Valley Trail 
The Credit Valley Trail will be a continuous 100 km pathway through the Credit River Valley – from the hills of the headwaters in Orangeville to the shores of Lake Ontario in Port Credit. The Credit Valley Trail will connect people with the beauty of nature, rich cultural and natural heritage experiences, Indigenous heritage and values, and to the sacred, sustaining waters of the Credit River. Your donation will support Credit Valley Conservation’s first steps along the path to bringing the Credit Valley Trail to life, one kilometre at a time!
