COVID-19 update: A Message from LSCF Executive Director

Dear friends of the Foundation,

We hope you and your loved ones are doing well. As concerns about the impact of COVID-19 (aka Coronavirus) continue to grow, everyone’s health and safety is our priority.

Please be advised that due to evolving impact of COVID-19 (aka Coronavirus), the Foundation office is closed and is anticipated the office will reopen on Monday, April 6th. We will continue to monitor the situation as it unfolds and will keep you updated.

While the office is closed, we are working remotely from home and always welcome the opportunity to connect with you. You can reach us by email at foundation@lsrca.on.ca and you are still able to donate online.

As a friend of the Foundation, we sincerely appreciate your support of a healthier Lake Simcoe watershed. We too are family members with elderly parents and members at risk, we know it’s vitally important to check-in with loved ones and neighbours to ensure everyone has the care and assistance they need.

When possible, use this time to reconnect with nature! Conservation areas and trails will remain open. The Great Outdoors is a wonderful way to get some much needed fresh air and exercise.

Stay safe everyone,
Cheryl Taylor, Executive Director

It assimilates waste from sewage treatment plants, supports local business and agriculture, and hosts thousands of tourists and recreational activities. It has an annual economic impact of over $200 million. Meaningful protection of the Lake Simcoe watershed is critical and we need your help to achieve it. (read more)
