Keep It Real Campaign

Un-change the world.

We have the opportunity to protect and restore some of the most amazing, biologically rich lands in Hamilton and Burlington – forever.

Home to over 1,500 species of plants and animals, the Cootes to Escarpment EcoPark System is a protected, permanent and connected natural lands sanctuary from the Hamilton Harbour to the Niagara Escarpment.

But there has been a missing link in the properties. Now is our chance to complete the connection and create a natural corridor between Cootes Paradise and the Escarpment. Your donation will protect this land forever.

Towards the western end, this land is the ONLY place where deer, rabbits, foxes and other wildlife can travel without crossing a 400-series highway.

Since 2013, we’ve acquired over 200 acres to build on the 4700 acres of existing protected lands.

UPDATE: Give now and your gift is doubled! The Heather & Ross Hamlin Fund at Hamilton Community Foundation is now matching funds; please give generously.
