Since most of the land in our watershed is privately owned, it is important for landowners to have the knowledge, skills and resources to make good decisions about managing their lands. We try to achieve this through all of our programs, but in particular, through our community relations and education programs.
There are two main objectives to our community relations and education programs:
We use a number of different methods to achieve these objectives:
Public participation is very important to the success of our planning initiatives. Open houses, information sessions and public meetings are an important component of any major planning studies or program initiatives. Advertising of these events is done through local news media and on this website.
FundraisingOver the past several years, we have had to rely more on generating revenue and raising funds. In order to be successful with these initiatives, the public needs to be familiar with the CRCA and the many aspects of our organization. Promotion and communications have become increasingly important to ensure that we are able to secure the funds to do all of our other work.
The CRCA raises funds in a variety of ways including grant applications, sponsorships and fundraising events. We also work closely with the Cataraqui Conservation Foundation to raise funds for education and land acquisition, and the Friends of Lemoine Point and the Friends of Mac Johnson Wildlife Area to raise funds for specific projects.
The CRCA is a registered charitable
organization. Donations can be directed to any of our programs, conservation
areas or services. Please call (613) 546-4228 for more information.
