The PEC Trail Committee has committed to trying to raise $80,000 of the $450,000 budget and the County will provide the rest. An anonymous donor has offered up to $40,000 to match our fund raising which as of today sits at $9,400 paid or pledged.
Our website for making donations is www.pectrails.ca. This website was voluntarily created by one of our members, Sharon Mulholland.
Paul Greer Excavating will rake, grade and pack the trail smooth. It is a lot of work—and much of it is donated and volunteered. Along with Greer’s, A-1 Excavating and Reg Grosse will contribute equipment and operators to the effort.
One of those to embrace this opportunity is Richard Karlo.
Others are starting to think about ways they can connect to users of the Millennium Trail— Karlo has been speaking with other wineries within close proximity to the trail. Many are taking note. Karlo imagines a wine tour one day with the trail as the thread linking the participants.
We are excited to announce that registration for the 2017 Forests Ontario Annual Conference is now open! The conference will take place on Friday, February 10th at the Nottawasaga Inn, Alliston. Early bird registration rates will be available until December 31, 2016 - so register early and save!
This year we will be exploring the theme of It Takes A Forest . The forests of Ontario have a great story to tell – so let’s start telling it! It takes a forest to keep us healthy, support wildlife, build our communities and fight climate change. As society makes critical decisions regarding our forests, it is now more important than ever that we all understand the importance of this resource in a changing world. Join us and over 300 landowners, forestry professionals, educators and students, at one of Ontario's largest forestry conferences. Come to learn, network, and engage in conversations around the future of Ontario's forests.
We hope you will join us! For more information about conference, and to register, visit http://www.forestsontario.ca/community/annual-conference/ or use the attached registration form.
