The Friends of Island Lake (FOIL) was established in 2005 to support the Island Lake Community Trails Campaign. The Friends were formed to enhance community involvement and awareness of the need to expand the current trail system at Island Lake Conservation Area.
The Friends of Island Lake are local residents and community members dedicated to ensuring that the community and its visitors benefit from quality educational, interpretive and recreational opportunities at Island Lake Conservation Area. FOIL is a fundraising committee of the Credit Valley Conservation Foundation.
In the past 10 years, the Friends of Island Lake have:
- Raised more than $2 million in donations (cash and in-kind labour and materials)
- Completed more than 10 kilometers of fully accessible trail at Island Lake Conservation Area
- Contributed more than 10,000 volunteer hours each year
- Hosted 10 incredible Bass Fishing Derbies that have attracted hundreds of out-of –town visitors and raised over $235,000
