The Greenbelt is connected to wetlands and waterways which provide clean, fresh water for about 7.5 million Ontarians. The Rescue Lake Simcoe Charitable Foundation is working to protect one of the major watersheds in Ontario’s Greenbelt. This young grassroots environmental organization has seen success over the past 3 years with campaigns such as the popular 2005 Ladies of the Lake calendar, which brought awareness to the unique challenges facing Lake Simcoe. The project enables the group’s continued growth and their ability to educate Ontarians about the ways the Lake can be saved from ongoing pollution runoff and deteriorating quality using the Greenbelt as a forum for change.
