In a continued effort to be transparent regarding NPCA board member expenses, Chair Brenda Johnson would like to publicly disclose she has voluntarily donated her NPCA per diem to the Glanbrook Conservation Committee to support their volunteer work at Binbrook Conservation Area, in Hamilton.

The Glanbrook Conservation Committee is a group of volunteers working to improve the habitat for wildlife in what was previously Glanbrook Township, now the City of Hamilton. The group includes, naturalists, environmentalists, bird watchers, hikers, canoeists, as well as fishermen and hunters. They have been active in the community for over 25 years, accomplishing many projects at Binbrook C.A. such as maintaining the Tyneside Trail, installing blue bird boxes, fish habitat cribs, invasive species identification and removal, the annual Spring Fishing Derby and many more conservation related initiatives.

The approved per diem is $76.10 per meeting. On behalf of Chair Johnson, $1,598.10 has been donated to the GCC in 2019.
