Since 1974, the Conservation Foundation has worked together with Ausable Bayfield Conservation Authority in its mission to foster financial partnerships supporting healthy watersheds and its vision of active community partnerships sustaining healthy watersheds.
The Conservation Foundation raises funds for conservation projects in the community at events including the Conservation Dinner and the South Huron Trail Fundraiser Golf Tournament.
Foundation activities include support for conservation education programs, the Junior Conservationist program, the Student Environmental Award bursary, Commemorative Woods, a family-friendly fishing derby (with the Exeter Lions Club), accessible trails, and the current Jones Bridge Project for a new Pedestrian Bridge on the South Huron Trail, and much more.
“I would like to thank Bob for his leadership during the past six years and to express my thanks to the board members and staff,” said Dave Frayne. “I hope to continue the Conservation Foundation’s legacy with their support.”
