Lower Trent Conservation – Fuelling-up Local Youth Environmental Education

In Community, Local

Lower Trent Conservation is fuelling-up for another big year of youth environmental education in conjunction with the upcoming 2018-19 school year. The organization received a $5,000 donation from Enbridge Pipelines Inc., North America’s premier energy infrastructure company, in support of its ‘Connecting KIDS with NATURE’ youth environmental education initiatives. The funds have been earmarked specifically for the 2019 Tri-County Children’s Water Festival.
“We are grateful for this generous donation contributed by Enbridge,” says Glenda Rodgers, Lower Trent Conservation’s Chief Administrative Officer. “Without support from individuals and local businesses like this, our organization would be unable to plan for, much the less deliver, the quality youth environmental education programming we’re known for. This money will be used to help us educate young people about the importance of water, our most precious natural resource, and in doing so will help to foster the next generation of environmental champions.”
‘Connecting KIDS with NATURE’ features a variety of programming spearheaded by Lower Trent Conservation including the Tri-County Children’s Water Festival™, Caring for our Watersheds™ contest, Yellow Fish Road™, in-school and outdoor presentations and workshops, youth-based community groups, and more.
“Enbridge is pleased to support Lower Trent Conservation and the enriching experience they provide local youth through this amazing program,” said Brent Bullough, Community Engagement Advisor with Enbridge. “As current and future stewards of our waters, it is vital that we teach children about the importance of this precious resource.”
Lower Trent Conservation receives no financial support from government for youth education activities. A fundraising program was initiated in 2016 to seek donations to support youth environmental education programs. Anyone interested in donating or finding out more can contact Lower Trent Conservation at 613-394-4829, or visit www.LTC.on.ca.
