Friends of the Coves is a not-for-profit charitable organization focused on the Coves Environmentally Significant Area located in the center of the City of London. It is a former meander of the Thames River and is now a series of three ponds with major feeder creeks.  The area contains wetlands, former landfill sites, uplands, wooded areas, and an urban meadow. A number of invasive species are a significant problem along with erosion, litter, and the need for forest renewal and the restoration of habitat. Managed public trails are a priority this year and major progress has been made in this area.

"We greatly appreciate the continuing support of Union Gas, as a great deal has been done to improve the environmental health of this area," said Thom McClenaghan, president, Friends of the Coves. "Progress is usually the result of the efforts of many and we are most pleased that Union Gas has chosen to be part of our team once again."
