Ontario is helping Guelph’s River Systems Advisory Committee protect the Eramosa and Speed Rivers with a $15,680 grant from the Great Lakes Guardian Community Fund.
The River Systems Advisory Committee will plant trees and shrubs to help strengthen the banks along the Eramosa and Speed Rivers, which ultimately flow into Lake Erie.
Protecting and restoring the Great Lakes is part of the Ontario government’s plan to enhance quality of life for Ontario families and ensure a strong, green economy for future generations.
“Congratulations to the River Systems Advisory Committee who is helping protect the Eramosa and Speed Rivers, improving Guelph’s environment and helping protect the Great Lakes. Water quality and natural resource management are top priorities for the people of Guelph.”
— Hon. Liz Sandals, MPP for Guelph
“The City’s River System’s Advisory Committee is delighted to be receiving the Great Lakes Guardian Community Fund grant in partnership with the Ontario Public Interest Research Group. This funding will enable the City to work closely with the community to enhance the Eramosa and Speed rivers and their floodplains.”
