Tiree supports community connections through MVC Centre
April 4, 2014, Carleton Place—The Mississippi Valley Conservation Foundation has a Conservation Partner in Tiree Facility Solutions Inc. (Tiree).
Tiree is a management consulting and professional services firm providing real property advisory and project management solutions. Led by Duncan McNaughton, the organization donated $2,500 to the newly constructed Mississippi Valley Conservation Centre
“We really like the fact that the MVC Centre has a community component and is a natural meeting place for those groups who work to protect and enhance our natural environment,” says McNaughton.
Tiree has a local connection with an office on Bridge Street in Carleton Place. Their donation will help offset costs of the new build and kick start the trail connection from the MVC Centre to the Mississippi River, a project that will benefit the whole community.
“Helping get the pathway work off the ground makes sense for us. People can use the MVC Centre as a starting point, enjoy the green space of Roy Brown Park, then make their way downtown along the riverside trail,” explains McNaughton.
The MVC Centre— located along Highway 7 in Carleton Place adjacent to Roy Brown Park— officially opened its doors this past August. The new site is an opportunity to expand the MVCA outdoor educational programs, provide space for environmental groups to organize watershed-based initiatives and act as an Emergency Operations Centre.
The MVC Centre fundraising campaign includes opportunities for both corporate and individual donations. MVCF general fundraising efforts continue to further the outreach and project-based initiatives of the conservation authority such as outdoor education and landowner stewardship projects.
