Volunteering for a Better Tomorrow

Volunteering for a Better Tomorrow

Taking care of places and stewarding lands requires spending time in nature. Many Nature Conservancy of Canada (NCC) properties are supported and maintained with the help of Conservation Volunteers (CVs) in communities from coast to coast, who donate their time to help conserve and care for land so that others may enjoy it.

New formulation Solo ADV herbicide welcome news for growers supporting expanding lentil market demand in Western Canada

Lentil acres continue to expand across fields throughout Western Canada thanks to increased prices and demand from export markets. In fact, according to Dr. Bert Vandenberg from the University of Saskatchewan Department of Plant Sciences, Crop Development Centre, “growers in Western Canada now supply half of the world’s lentils.”

For growers, one of the largest obstacles in meeting this growing demand for the crop is weeds.

TORONTO, ON, March 31, 2016 – Parkinson’s changes everything. It is a disease of the brain that touches almost every aspect of daily living, including: movement, mood, speech, eating and drinking, sleep, and cognitive changes. It worsens over time, robbing a person of independence through increasing complications, and ultimately resulting in premature death. There is no known cause or cure for Parkinson’s disease.

There has been a lot of interest and coverage in recent days about close relations between Canada and the United States and meetings between our respective political leaders to discuss issues of mutual interest.

Among these many common issues, one area where there has been friendship and considerable goodwill for more than 30 years is the shared pursuit of conservation. It is a huge success story that has involved vision and partnership.

This St. Patrick’s Day, defy convention and celebrate snakes!

This St. Patrick’s Day, defy convention and celebrate snakes!

For many of us, Saint Patrick is known as the protector of the rolling hills of Ireland. Every year North Americans join in celebrating his legendary story.

The green beer, shamrocks and other verdant regalia common of the current St. Paddy’s Day are actually meant to celebrate the story of St. Patrick. Folklore has it that after 40 days of fasting and wearing a garment of green, he drove the snakes out of Ireland and chased them into the sea.
