Nature-Friendly Burlington

Nature-Friendly Burlington

“Across cultures, humans inherently value nature. The magic of seeing fireflies flickering long into the night is immense. We draw energy and nutrients from nature. We find sources of food, medicine, livelihoods and innovation in nature. Our well-being fundamentally depends on nature.”

 Achim Steiner

 

Our Nature-Friendly Burlington program connects more of the community to local green space, stewardship opportunities and to a multitude of benefits nature experiences provide.

Learn. Discover. Care. Protect.

BurlingtonGreen is proud to be a founding member and partner of Bird Friendly Hamilton Burlington, a Nature Canada initiative that works to protect birds across the country. 

Thanks to the hard work and passion of the Bird Friendly Hamilton Burlington group, Burlington became the seventh city in Canada to earn the bird friendly city designation.

Advocate for Nature & Raise Awareness

Be a changemaker in the community and stand up for nature:

  • Reach out to your ward councilor, local MP or MPP about the importance of protecting nature, and why it matters to you. 
  • Delegate to Burlington Council on the importance of continued nature protection by-laws in the community. 
  • Check out our various issue Speak Up campaigns.
  • Share what you know with others in the community. Shed some light on the role that nature plays in mitigating climate change and reducing negative human impacts.
  • Take the time to learn about local nature and how you can support it.
