This year has been a very difficult one for Canadians, especially for those living in and visiting waterfront communities. Warnings and evacuations lasted much of 2023 as areas were devastated by record-level storms, wildfires, and other symptoms of climate change.
Despite it all, thousands of community groups and volunteers have continued to make freshwater protection a priority. These passionate community leaders understood that nature-based solutions are an essential way we can increase resiliency and protect the health of our lakes, rivers, and shorelands. Perhaps you were one of them involved in a Watersheds Canada project this year, or at least cheered us on. Thank you for the many ways you have been there for Watersheds Canada!
You can be there again this Giving Tuesday to ensure freshwater protection continues to take precedence in 2024. We cannot thrive without a healthy environment.
By becoming a monthly donor today, your impact will be doubled thanks to the generosity of Maitland Tower, a 13-acre site along the St. Lawrence River in Ontario that is a registered Living Community Challenge project. Maitland Tower is leading by example by donating to Watersheds Canada and by restoring their property’s shoreland with our Natural Edge program. Meanwhile, our team has never had so much demand for our Fish Habitat Program and our acclaimed shoreland assessment and restoration work that supports lake and river stewardship across Canada. Donation growth equals impact growth. Please help today.
The way we protect our freshwater areas is together, and monthly donations are a key way you can help our organization ensure this is possible for years to come. Steady funding allows us to have a huge impact as more shorelands and wildlife habitat will be re-naturalized, and more education and stewardship programming will be delivered across Canada.
By giving $5, $10, or even $20 each month, you will ensure this critical work is possible.
