WELLAND, Ont. (December 4, 2017)—The Niagara Peninsula Conservation Authority (NPCA) is pleased to announce Member of Provincial Parliament (MPP) Wayne Gates, New Democratic Party (NDP), has committed his support in helping the NPCA plant one million trees, and three million native species throughout the Niagara watershed.
“One million trees is an ambitious goal and we can't do it alone. Having our elected officials on board, recognizing the significance of these bold plans sends a strong message to our community partners," said NPCA Board Chair Sandy Annunziata.
“We are looking forward to the rest of Niagara’s MPPs acknowledging the significance and importance of this undertaking,” added Chief Administrative Officer Mark Brickell.
These eight initiatives are part of the organization’s long-term vision, and commitment to its legislative mandate, as set out in Section 20 of The Conservation Authorities Act, to establish and undertake programs designed to further the conservation, restoration, and management of natural resources.

The NPCA manages the impact of human activities, urban growth, and rural activities on the watershed, with programs that focus on initiatives that help keep people and their property safe from flooding and erosion— while retaining our drinking water safe to drink.
