This 2022, EBC's goal will be securing 2,069 acres, spanning 27 properties. These precious properties are homes to many species at risk in Ontario including:
Spotted Turtle, Queensnake, Pitcher’s Thistle, Hill’s Thistle, Barn Swallow, Little Brown Myotis, Midland Painted Turtle, Canada Warbler, Eastern Wood Pewee, Monarch Butterflies, Eastern Meadowlark, Hart's tongue fern, Bobolink, Woodthrush just to name a few.
The 'Wild Futures Project' is a large land conservation securement project which includes 27 new properties located along Manitoulin Island and the Niagara Escarpment ensuring that land and biodiversity are protected for generations to come.
To accomplish this huge conservation project, the Federal Government has offered EBC $1.2 million in funding over a two year period (March 2021-March 2023).
Our goal is to raise matching funding and we need your help!
