Conservation Halton’s mission is to help protect the natural environment, from lake to escarpment, for the benefit and enjoyment of present and future generations. It is essential to be good stewards of the natural environment; it is our natural heritage. Protecting and maintaining our natural heritage in turn benefits human, ecological, and economic health. We are reliant on a healthy ecosystem and natural spaces, just as animals and plants are. We inherited our natural spaces from the generations before us and will pass them on to our children and future generations. Stewardship, which includes wise, informed decision making, will help ensure that generations to come will be able to enjoy the natural heritage that we have today.
