The St. Clair Region Conservation Authority (SCRCA) is celebrating 60 years of watershed management and conservation and to celebrate, the organization is launching the first-ever St. Clair Challenge – an event that will encourage our watershed residents to get out and explore the natural areas in the St. Clair region while raising funds to support local conservation efforts.
Running between July 1st and August 31st, participants are challenged to walk, run, hike, bike, or paddle the many trails and waterways located in the SCRCA watershed.
“We have created four different distance challenges ranging from 6 kilometres to 60 kilometres,” said Donna Blue, Manager of Communications at the SCRCA, “We hope this event will not only raise money to support conservation efforts in our region, but also introduce people to local natural gems they may not have been aware of.”
Participants can register for the St. Clair Challenge by visiting https://raceroster.com/events/2021/49406/the-st-clair-challenge.
Registration fees, fundraising efforts and donations will support the St. Clair Region Conservation Foundation – a registered, charitable organization that raises funds to support the conservation programs of the St. Clair Region Conservation Authority. Funds raised will help support a number of environmental programs including conservation education, tree planting, wetland creation, species at risk research, and upgrades to local conservation area facilities and amenities.
