Did You Know?

In the past 100 years, anywhere from 200 to 500 terrestrial vertebrate species have gone extinct. This is at least 100 times greater than the natural rate of extinction. 40.7% of amphibian species are endangered or at risk of becoming endangered.


Spring Water Awareness

Springtime is a bad time to play near the water.  The water is cold and dangerous and the current is strong.  Ice, safe to skate or play on during the winter, can quickly become thin and weak after a warm spring day.  It may look safe but is not!  Stream banks are slippery and dangerous.

Lower Trent Conservation works with local school boards to promote this message to our school children through morning announcements in the school, and through school newsletters.
