Protect, Connect, Inspire

The Conservation Halton Foundation is a registered charitable organization that works to protect our natural areas, connect our community with nature and inspire individuals and groups to create meaningful change.

Want to help the Conservation Halton Foundation make a difference?

When you donate your time or money, you protect environmentally significant areas in our watershed, restore areas that have been ecologically damaged, protect wildlife species that are at risk, provide opportunities for the community to connect with nature and create education programs to inspire the next generation. We know that nurturing an appreciation for nature and teaching about environmental issues is a powerful way to overcome the challenges we face today, like climate change, and prepare for the challenges of the future.

With your donations, we recently accomplished the following:

  • Taught more than 5,000 students about the importance of forests and water, each year
  • Planted thousands of trees in various areas of our communities and watershed, each year
  • Purchased more than 100 acres of natural land, so that it will be protected, permanently
  • Constructed new enclosures for the birds of prey at the Mountsberg Raptor Centre

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact the Foundation at 905-336-1158 (extension 2256) or foundation@hrca.on.ca

2022 – Re:Generations

Making a donation to the Conservation Halton Foundation through your will is a meaningful way to protect the environment for future generations. Click here to learn more about how you can include a donation in your will.

Making a donation of publicly traded securities or stocks is one of the least expensive ways to give because your gift is exempt from capital gains tax, while you receive a receipt for income tax purposes for the full market value of the shares at the date of the transfer.

Please contact the Conservation Halton Foundation at 905- 336-1158 (extension 2256) or foundation@hrca.on.ca to discuss your donation.

The Conservation Halton Foundation is a partner organization to Conservation Halton and we raise charitable donations and sponsorships for environmental projects and programs in the Halton watershed, benefitting the residents of Mississauga, Oakville, Milton, Burlington, Puslinch, Halton Hills and surrounding areas.

We raise funds to purchase natural lands to create new conservation areas and enhance existing protected areas for future generations to enjoy. We work to improve natural areas by planting trees and shrubs to provide habitat and stabilize creekbanks. Our stewardship efforts aim to protect and restore environmentally significant natural areas and watercourses.

Environmental education is a critical component in the development of healthy, ecologically conscious citizens. With initiatives like the Halton Children’s Water Festival, and programs like From the Ground Up, we are working to educate and inspire our young people to preserve, protect, and enjoy our natural surroundings. Our Mountsberg Raptor Centre provides young people with a unique first-hand experience to raise awareness about the diversity of Ontario native birds of prey, and the challenges they face.

Each year more than 75,000 visitors come to Crawford Lake to experience the First Nations heritage at the Crawford Lake Village on our sites, and celebrate the region’s unique geological and cultural significance.

Our conservation areas like Crawford Lake, Mountsberg, Kelso and others, provide life-giving, nature-based recreation and renewal for hundreds of thousands of outdoor lovers every year.
