On June 30th of this year the CCFS successfully acquired another 40 hectares for (purchased for $750,000) that was added to 72 hectares purchased by the society in 2005. These areas are protected as municipal nature parks. Now we have turned our attention to another 60 hectares in 3 parcels along Perseverance Creek. These parcels are scheduled to be logged in the next 24 months.
Project Perseverance is a month long campaign happening this October to raise funds toward the protection of these next 3 parcels of forest, trails, wetlands and creeks. The campaign culminates in a week long matching funds opportunity from October 23-29th when all funds raised are combined and matched by a secret Forest Fairy!
Project Perseverance includes:
The Project Perseverance Raffle – Sept 23rd to Oct 29th
The Perseverance Online Auction – October 14th to 29th
The Perseverance Trail Run – Oct 23rd
Perseverance Hallows’ Eve Ball Oct 29th
As well as a series of community based/business events that will raise funds Oct 23-29
