Protecting wetlands & fresh water in Collingwood

Georgian Bay Forever is thankful for the support of the RBC Blue Water Project to help eradicate invasive Phragmites from Collingwood's provincially significant coastal wetlands. The Breathing New Life to Collingwood Beaches initiative is focused on reducing invasive Phragmites which threatens biodiversity, habitat for threatened species, and wetland functionality. The RBC Blue Water Project helps protect the world’s most precious natural resource: fresh water. Since 2007, RBC has pledged nearly C$44 million to more than 740 charitable organizations worldwide that protect watersheds and promote access to clean drinking water, with an additional $8.8 million pledged to universities for water programs.
RBC has just released an important 2016 Canadian Water Attitudes Study , that reinforces the need to protect water. Please read the highlights of this report and about Breathing New Life to Collingwood Beaches.
