Giving Tuesday

What is Giving Tuesday?

December 3rd is Giving Tuesday, a day for Canadians to give to the causes that mean the most to you.

With 25 nature reserves totaling 2,939 hectares (7,262 acres), our reserves protect some of the province’s best remaining examples of imperiled and vulnerable habitats.

Your gift to Ontario Nature this Giving Tuesday will help us purchase our 26th nature reserve and permanently protect 360 acres of treasured habitat in Ontario.

But you don’t have to wait until December 3rd! You can donate today using the link below.

Protect a Piece of Nature #AcreByAcre

This 360-acre property is in eastern Ontario on the Frontenac Arch – a geological wonder that is home to more rare species than anywhere else in the country.

The Frontenac Arch supports some of the best remaining forest, shoreline and wetland habitat that we have left in the province. The landscape also provides a critical pathway for wildlife to safely migrate north from the Adirondack mountains, and is a refuge for species that are highly endangered everywhere else.

Agriculture, logging, cottage development and aggregate extraction could radically transform this landscape if it’s not protected.

Double Your Impact!

Thanks to nature-lovers like you, we’ve already met our $20,000 matching gift goal, but the property has a hefty price tag and we’re still short of the overall amount needed. Together, we can protect this piece of nature one acre at a time.

Thank you to Quest Nature Tours, Ontario Nature’s Board of Directors and an anonymous donor for their support in matching every dollar donated up to $20,000.

We have an incredible opportunity to protect a piece of Ontario, and you can help us protect it one acre at a time.

$10 – Protect a piece of nature

$75 – Protect a quarter acre

$375 – Protect one acre
