Did You Know

On average, each resident of the Credit River watershed contributes $1.15 a year towards a portion of the funds needed for our conservation areas. Revenue from memberships lets us do so much more at our conservation areas, such as educational programming, fun events, trail maintenance, and environmental enhancement projects.

Funds raised from memberships make our conservation areas even more special. Think of it in the same way as purchasing a gym membership at your local community centre.

By purchasing a membership in “Our Credit” you can become a vital part of something natural.
