Protecting our natural environment is our collective responsibility. Like you, we appreciate the importance of having a clean and healthy environment within which to work and play.
Wintergreen raises funds in support of projects and programs that promote community conservation and enhance the local environment. We contribute to the community trails system, conservation education and the greening of our community. Some of our projects include the Gillies Lake boardwalk, promenade and path lighting, as well as an environmental awareness series of hikes.
Contributions from individuals, corporations and volunteers help us provide opportunities to connect the residents and visitors with the beauty of nature which surrounds us. Your assistance is vital to long-term preservation of our natural lands, trails and watershed. From small contributions to major sponsorship, there are several opportunities to become a community partner and play an integral role in sustaining a conservation legacy.
As a charitable organization, Wintergreen Fund for Conservation provides receipts for donations. Cumulative gifts of $500 or more are recognized annually on this website.
Whether a one-time donation, monthly or annual contribution, your support helps our efforts in community conservation.
