Conservation begins at home. For Credit Valley Conservation, this means protecting, preserving, managing and maintaining all living things in the Credit River watershed.
Climate change is of special concern. It affects us locally with severe weather, flooding and drought. The work we do every day is our local response to this global phenomenon.
Storms that statistically occur once every 100 years now happen more frequently. The July 8, 2013 storm felt in south Mississauga and the Greater Toronto Area was Ontario’s most costly ever, with an estimated $900 million in insurance claims. Our strategic plan aims to build resilience so communities can adapt to the changing climate.
In 2016 we worked with our partners to deliver programs that meet the challenges of climate change, urbanization, disappearing wetlands and devastating invasive species.
Enjoy this celebration of collaboration with our partners – municipalities, volunteers, neighbours, landowners, youth, corporations and more.
See you by the Credit River!
