Free Family Day Weekend at MVCA Conservation Areas Kicks Off 50th Anniversary Celebrations
February 15, 2018 CARLETON PLACE—Mississippi Valley Conservation Authority (MVCA) has a lot to celebrate in 2018 as it marks 50 years of conservation. Since inception on May 2, 1968, it has been MVCA’s mission to assume a leadership role in the conservation, enhancement and development of the Mississippi Valley by way of watershed planning, integrated resource management programs and conservation awareness.
“To celebrate this milestone, we have a number of community events planned throughout the year,” said Shannon Gutoskie, MVCA Community Relations Coordinator. “To kick things off we are offering free admission to the Mill of Kintail and Morris Island Conservation Areas Family Day long weekend, February 17-19. We are also organizing a watershed tour, an open house and a Children’s Water Festival to name a few. Event details will be posted on our website www.mvc.on.ca and we will be using the hashtag #mvca50.”
The 50th Annual General Meeting will take place on Wednesday, February 21 at 10:00am at MVCA’s office in Carleton Place. The public is welcomed to attend.
MVCA is one of 36 Conservation Authorities in Ontario. Formed in 1968, MVCA’s mandate is to manage the watershed’s resources in partnership with our eleven member municipalities and the Province of Ontario. For more information, visit www.mvc.on.ca, follow us on Twitter and like us on Facebook.
