Proceeds from this year’s Gala will support two invaluable CVC initiatives. The Credit Valley Conservation Foundation is proud to support the Conservation Youth Corps (CYC) and CVC’s Conservation Areas.
CYC is a youth program for high school students living or going to school in the Credit River area. This program provides incredible environmental / conservation-focused volunteer opportunities for our local youth. CYC participants gain practical experience in conservation and natural resource management in a safe and structured environment and are given a chance to become directly involved in local conservation projects, meet new friends and fulfill their community service volunteer requirements for high school graduation.
The Conservation Areas of CVC represent a cross section of natural and cultural landscapes that characterize the watershed. Rare flora and fauna; habitats; ecosystems; and cultural heritage features are all protected within these areas. CVC’s Conservation Areas exist to protect the Credit River Watershed’s significant and representative ecosystems, and offer sustainable natural and cultural heritage appreciation and recreational benefits to its residents and visitors.CVC aims to provide watershed residents with an enjoyable and educational experience every time they visit.
