Give gift to nature as alternative

Donate or give give green gifts this season


Conservation Dinner tickets or gift certificates for trail donations, snowshoeing experiences among ideas for alternative presents this holiday gift-giving season 

Are you struggling to find gift ideas for that someone special this holiday season? A present doesn’t have to have wrapping paper, bows, and ribbons to be a gift. A local charity asks you to consider some ‘green’ gifts this year.

The Ausable Bayfield Conservation Foundation (ABCF) offers a number of ideas ranging from donations in the name of someone towards your favourite nature trail, tree planting to green the watershed, education programs for youth, the South Huron Trail Mobile making nature accessible, or tickets to a fun-filled evening at the Conservation Dinner. Other ideas include snowshoe rentals or purchasing trees for someone to plant on their property – that’s a “gift that keeps on giving.”

“When you buy a ‘green’ gift, it’s something special and makes a difference in the health of your community,” said Judith Parker, ABCF Secretary. “These alternative gifts include outdoor experiences, benefit the local environment, and support healthy living. Also, all donations over $20 receive a charitable gift receipt for income tax purposes.”

To find out more about giving a gift to nature, visit online or visit the Ausable Bayfield Conservation office at 71108 Morrison Line, Exeter or call 519-235-2610; toll free 1-888-286-2610.
