Essex Region – With the holiday season in full swing, it can be challenging to find those last minute gifts on your list. For the special someone in your life that might have everything, Essex Region Conservation offers a number of opportunities to provide a gift that lasts a lifetime and helps support the Place for Life. With four unique offerings, you will be giving back with a meaningful contribution to our region. Prices range from $50 – $75, with all proceeds contributing to important local conservation projects.
Plant a tree: Every tree planted makes a difference, so honour a loved one while creating a greener community and taking climate action. Your recipient will receive a tree-shaped ornament commemorating your gift.
Grow the Greenway: The perfect gift for the avid trail user, whether by bike or foot. A deed to the Greenway Trail help connect our community with the nearly 100KM of safe and accessible trails, and will provide your loved one with their very own metre of Greenway with the accompanying ‘Deed’ and GPS Coordinates.
Conservation Annual Pass: For the nature enthusiast in your life, a Conservation Annual Pass will grant them access to some of our region’s unique and naturally beautiful areas. Explore ERCA’s 19 Conservation Areas, see rare bird species during one of the biggest bird migrations in North America, and take in dozens of fun events throughout the year.
Gift of Heritage: A donation of just $50 will help build a modern, environmentally friendly Heritage Centre at the John R. Park Homestead, complete with accessible teaching spaces and washrooms facilities – an amazing space for students and visitors alike. Your loved one will receive their very own quilt square certificate as a keepsake, reminding them that their donation is helping to ‘stitch together’ our heritage for generations to come.
