To create awareness and raise funds to enhance our natural environment for healthy living and economic vibrancy in the Essex Region.
Welcome to the Essex Region Conservation Foundation
The Essex Region Conservation Foundation (ERCF) was established as a registered, charitable public foundation in 1977 with a vital goal to receive and maintain funds for charitable, educational, conservation and heritage purposes related to the conservation and restoration of natural and heritage resources in the Essex region.
The Foundation supports the Essex Region Conservation Authority by raising the funds required to reforest and green the Essex region, protect those significant natural areas that remain, preserve our cultural heritage, restore wetlands, and increase green connections through acquiring and developing trails.

Here's a good sized butternut that was turned up on the Ojibway Prairie Bioblitz, growing in Lasalle Woods. This species is endangered in ontario due to habitat loss and more recently an introduced fungus called butternut canker. Most of the trees in the province have been affected by it, and about a third of Ontario's butternut trees a have already succumbed to fungus. This one looks to be in perfect health :)R~
