Union Gas Donates $2,500 to Friends of the Coves to Support Environmental Conservation and Restoration

London, ON, September 15, 2017 - Union Gas supports Friends of the Coves with a $2,500 grant to support the restoration of the Coves environmentally significant area.

"At Union Gas, we're dedicated to the environment and to energy conservation programs," said Taylor Jones, construction and growth manager, Union Gas. "That's why we're proud to continue our support of the important work that Friends of the Coves is doing for environmental conservation and restoration in this community."

The Coves, a hidden treasure in the heart of the City of London, was named for a series of three ponds that once formed a meander of the Thames River.  The recent expansion of walkable trails in the Coves Environmentally Significant Area has more than tripled the length of trails available.  The borders of the reconstituted asphalt trails are being replanted with native plants and flowers.

"Once again Union Gas has graciously stepped up to the plate to assist the works of Friends of the Coves Subwatershed," 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."
