Event Details at a Glance
Since its inception in 2006, the local community has helped raise more than $2.75 million through the annual gala in support of our conservation mission. Proceeds from this year's gala will support our current fundraising priority which is the Credit Valley Trail, a continuous 100-kilometre pathway through the Credit River Valley – from the Hills of the Headwaters in Orangeville to Lake Ontario in Port Credit. The trail will connect people to the beauty of nature, rich cultural experiences, Indigenous heritage and values, and to the sacred, sustaining waters of the Credit River. To date, 32 kilometres of the trail have been connected and we need your help to connect the remaining 68 kilometres.
The need for protected green space and outdoor recreational opportunities is more pressing than ever before. Access to natural spaces, like parks and trails, plays a critical role in maintaining health and wellness. The Credit Valley Trail puts nature at the heart of our communities and will be a protected, natural legacy for future generations.
