Help Protect the Shouldice Wetlands and the Glen - A Letter from Peggy Hutchison

An urgent request for financial support: Please help the community complete an important project, Protecting the Shouldice Wetlands and the Glen. This important natural heritage area on the Bruce Peninsula, 15 km northwest of Owen Sound, is being encroached upon by both an expanded quarry operation and a new quarry application immediately across the road from the existing one.

The community is in need of $60,000 to fund essential hydrogeological and other expertise for the related Environmental Review Tribunal and Ontario Municipal Board hearings on the applications.
