The Conservation Halton Stewardship Program aims to enhance natural areas in our community and our connections to them.  This is done by conserving natural lands and engaging people in hands-on projects and workshops.

"We recognize and thank Union Gas for their continuing support for our work with the Stewardship Program.  This allows us to engage volunteers throughout the community in meaningful activities that create more habitat for wildlife, improve our waterways and provide opportunities to interact positively with nature", said Brian Hobbs, Director of Development with Conservation Halton Foundation.  "The ongoing success of the Stewardship Program continues thanks to dedicated partners like Union Gas."
