This Giving Tuesday, consider donating to the Rouge Valley Foundation. Your donation will go a long way to help us continue to:

  1. 1.Provide subsidized educational programs, summer day camp and weekend programs for classes and children who can’t afford formal programs or outdoor nature experiences.

  1. 2.Have staff and volunteers available to keep our doors open to the general public on weekends, provide interpretive hikes and unique environmental education events and experiences.

  1. 3.Keep a roof over our heads - the historic Rouge Valley Conservation Centre, much like any home or centre, requires repairs and renovations. Our immediate needs include re-shingling our roof, updating our plumbing and other interior and exterior repairs.

  1. 4.Work to Conserve and Protect the natural ecosystems of the Rouge Valley Watershed that everyone loves.
