Protecting Philips Lake
Toronto and Region Conservation Authority
With more than 60 years of experience, TRCA is one of 36 Conservation Authorities in Ontario. Working with municipalities and other partners to look after the watersheds of the Toronto region and its Lake Ontario waterfront, the TRCA helps people understand, enjoy and look after the natural environment. Their vision is for The Living City, where human settlement can flourish forever as part of nature's beauty and diversity.
Funds received from The Gordon and Patricia Gray Animal Welfare Foundation have been used to support The Living City Foundation, designated towards a project specific to Philips Lake in Richmond Hill. Philips Lake is a protected lake in the Oak Ridges Corridor Conservation Reserve, and home to many regionally and locally rare species such as spring peepers and wood frogs.
