By supporting environmental work of the GRCA, the Grand River Conservation Foundation enriches the natural values of the Grand River watershed and encourages people to enjoy and learn from the outdoors. For fifty-three years, donors have helped kids attend outdoor education programs, built and cared for trails and nature centres, planted thousands of trees and offered funding to groups and students taking on their own conservation projects.
