‘Experience the Moraine’ Campaign

The Oak Ridges Trail Association (ORTA), a membership based, volunteer charitable organization, is working with various stakeholders like the Oak Ridges Moraine Land Trust, Conservation Authorities and landowners to ensure public access to the Moraine, while restoring its natural habitat. We need your financial donations to ORTA to achieve this objective.

Your support will allow future generations to enjoy the experience of a hiking trail through natural forests, wetlands and meadows, beside streams and lakes, climbing the ridge of sandy hills which form the Moraine. From the Northumberland County Forest in the east to Mono Township at the base of the Niagara Escarpment on the west, the restored natural habitat will shelter animals and birds whose historic home on the Oak Ridges Moraine has been compromised first by agriculture and increasingly in recent years, by urban development. The Oak Ridges Moraine Trail will provide access to this environmental treasure if we act now to manage and preserve it. 

All donations are tax deductible. Receipts for gifts over $10.  Give generously and thank you for your support. Charitable # 892978164 RR 0001.
