For the last six years, Union Gas has generously donated funds to the Ganaraska Region Conservation Authority (GRCA) towards various stewardship projects. The local conservation authority is once again grateful for Union Gas’ support, with a generous $1,000 donation towards GRCA programs and services. Over the years, local Union Gas employees have assisted with many initiatives, including tree planting, the development of a native flower garden, and the installation and extension of accessible pathways at the GRCA head office and Corbett’s Dam.
“Union Gas is proud to support the GRCA and the important environmental conservation work that they are doing across the watershed,” said Brian Alexander, field supervisor utility services, Union Gas.
The Ganaraska Region Conservation Authority (GRCA) was formed in October 1946 under the Conservation Authorities Act and is one of the oldest conservation authorities in Ontario. The watersheds of the GRCA covers an area of 361 square miles from Wilmot Creek in Clarington to east of Cobourg from the south shore of Rice Lake down to Lake Ontario. This area includes seven municipalities in whole or in part: Township of Cavan-Monaghan, Town of Cobourg, Township of Alnwick-Haldimand, Township of Hamilton, Municipality of Port Hope, City of Kawartha Lakes, and Municipality of Clarington.
