Adopt a Tree, a Bird, a Bee program supports youth education

If there is a nature lover on your Christmas list this year, why not get them a gift that will make them smile and support Lower Trent Conservation at the same time.
Once again, the LTC has their adopt a tree, bird or bee campaign.
A bee is priced at $25, a bird at $50 and a tree is $100.
The LTC will send a card of thanks confirming the gift to you, or the honoree. You’ll also receive a charity tax receipt, and a bird seed bell.
Proceeds from the program will support the Connecting Kids with Nature, which is an umbrella of a number of youth environmental education initatives which relies strictly on grants and donations.
CAO Glenda Rodgers says each year thousands of local children and youth participate in the LTC’s education initiatives and help foster the next generation of environmental champions.
A few of their programs include: the Tri-County Children’s Water Festivatl, Caring for Our Watersheds competition, Stream of Dreams, Yellow Fish Road and Spring Water Awareness programs.

Lower Trent Conservation is a community-based non-profit environmental protection organization that protects, restores and manages the natural resources within the Trent River valley.

They work with local communities to create a healthy, environmentally diverse watershed that improves the quality of life for residents, makes our area more appealing to visitors and new business, and helps to ensure a more vibrant regional economy.

You can make the donation online or visit their office, Monday to Friday between 8:30 am – 4:30 pm at 714 Murray Street in Quinte West, north of Highway 401, off Wooler Road (CR 40).
