Windsor/Essex –  In a continued effort to proactively respond to the public health guidelines for preventative action related to COVID-19, Essex Region Conservation announces the following changes to operations and programs:

  • All programming will be cancelled until April 5, 2020.  This includes public and private school programming, festivals and events, and workshops.
  • The Essex Region Conservation Foundation Annual General Meeting will be postponed until a later date.
  • All essential services including our Flood Forecasting and Warning remain active.
  • ERCA offices at 360 Fairview Avenue West will continue modified operations. Inquiries can be made over the phone and by email. However, we will be closed to walk-in visits until further notice.
  • Staff will continue to review applications and issue permits as efficiently as possible, under modified working conditions.
  • Outdoor conservation areas and trails will continue to be open as usual, but indoor facilities such as the John R. Park Homestead will be closed.
  • Cottage Rentals at Holiday Beach Conservation Area will continue as usual, but with enhanced cleaning and sanitation protocols.
  • Staff returning after March 13 from any travel outside Canada have been directed to self-isolate according to public health directions.

Since 1973, Essex Region Conservation has been enriching and sustaining our region as the Place for Life.
