Donation supports Wild About Wildlife programs

Quinte Conservation’s Wild About Wildlife Family Nature Days are getting a boost thanks to a $1,500 donation from Union Gas.

“Thanks to their contributions over the years, we have had the opportunity to further strengthen the education programs in our communities,” said Maya Novrot, Quinte Conservation’s Education Co-ordinator. “This means that our watershed initiatives are becoming stronger as youth are learning the importance of a healthy watershed. We hope that many families and local residents will come to our Wild About Wildlife Days this summer to get a chance to meet some wildlife up close and learn more about our watersheds.”

Phil Langlois, Union Gas Utility Services Construction Manager, presented the cheque Wednesday.

“At Union Gas, we believe that environmental conservation and education is simply the right thing to do, for this generation and generations to come,” he said. “We’re very proud to continue our support of Quinte Conservation’s Wild About Wildlife Family Nature Days, helping local children and their families explore their environment through hands-on interactive activities.”
