Quinte Conservation is excited to announce that the Parrott Foundation has donated $250,000 to the Accessible Trails Project. Communications Manager Jennifer May-Anderson says, “We were so thrilled to get this news from the Parrott Foundation. We have been fundraising for the past three years to get this project off the ground. This very generous donation means that we can start building the trail this summer.”

May-Anderson adds, “At Quinte Conservation we believe that everyone should have the opportunity to spend time in nature to experience the wonder that our Conservation Areas have to offer. Almost all of our Conservation Areas are already economically accessible, as we work hard to keep them free. We will now be able to make a trail accessible to people of all ages and abilities so that everyone can enjoy the lush green of a forested trail in summer and explore the wonder of an autumn colour display.”

Quinte Conservation had already raised $25,000 through events such as Wines of the Watershed and Family Fun Day. Local businesses and community organizations have also supported the project. The trail will be located on the south side of Highway 2 across from the Quinte Conservation Administration Office in Belleville. Features will include turtle habitat ponds, a trail along the Bay of Quinte shoreline, accessible picnic tables and scent gardens.

Quinte Conservation is a community-based environmental protection agency. It serves 18 municipalities in the watersheds of the Moira, Napanee and Salmon Rivers and Prince Edward County. It provides cost-effective environmental expertise and leadership. Quinte Conservation’s main goal is to create a sustainable ecosystem where people and nature live in harmony.
