“Relax and Restore” Thanks to Rotary Club of Trenton

In Community

Quinte West — Lower Trent Conservation is pleased to announce a significant addition to the Trenton Greenbelt Conservation Area for the community’s enjoyment, with the donation of a bench from the Rotary Club of Trenton. This thoughtful addition aims to enhance the overall experience for visitors, providing a comfortable and serene spot for reflection amid the beauty of nature. The newly installed bench is placed in a picturesque location allowing hikers, nature enthusiasts, and families to pause and appreciate the beautiful Trent River.

The donation of the bench is part of the Trenton Greenbelt Restoration Project, named “Restoring the Greenbelt”, initiated in the spring of 2022. This is an ongoing effort to transform the local greenbelt into a native wildflower meadow with shade trees, enhanced seating areas, and an accessible walking trail. This project is made possible through the collaborative efforts of volunteers, community partners, and financial support from the Ontario Ministry of the Environment, Conservation and Parks (MECP), and the Nature Smart Climate Solutions Fund (a program of the Government of Canada’s Department of Environment and Climate Change in partnership with Conservation Ontario)”.

“The bench serves as more than just a resting spot; it represents an ongoing commitment from our local community to preserving and promoting the appreciation of our natural landscapes,” says Rhonda Bateman, Lower Trent Conservation CAO. “As individuals and families take a moment to rest and rejuvenate, they are encouraged to reflect on the importance of local community collaboration to make these environmental efforts happen. Without our community support, projects like these would not be possible.”

Visitors are encouraged to explore the Trenton Greenbelt’s new trail and gardens and find the newly donated bench for everyone to enjoy. Lower Trent Conservation would like to give a heartfelt gratitude to all those involved in making this donation possible. If you are interested in donating a bench please contact information@ltc.on.ca.
