Protecting Natural Land



The CVC Foundation is committed to assisting CVC secure new conservation lands to protect their benefit to the environment and connect more people with nature.

We firmly believe that greenlands securement:

  • Provides the greatest certainty for protection of water resources and can help address the problem of water security at its source, by protecting streams, rivers, lakes, ponds, and aquifers that provide drinking water
  • Protects ecologically vital lands and significant habitat for plants and animals
  • Creates, in perpetuity, a connected natural heritage system
  • Provides watershed residents and visitors with places to visit, appreciate, recreate and develop a connection to nature

Fundraising Leadership

The CVCF Land Securement Cabinet provides fundraising leadership to enable CVC to secure important natural areas through purchase, donation or easements. These secured natural areas will create an interconnected network of greenlands for the health and well-being of the environment and future generations.

Our campaign goals will advance CVC’s Greenlands Securement Strategy; a science-driven, criteria-based process that identifies significantly important conservation land. The strategy recommends at a minimum, over the next 20 years, that 5,670 hectares of greenlands within the Credit River watershed be secured by CVC and its partners, as these lands will contribute to the foundation of a connected system that will provide natural heritage protection, appreciation and recreational benefits for healthy ecosystems and healthy communities.
