If you had a UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve in your community, would you do everything you could to safeguard it? In fact, Burlington’s escarpment is part of the Province of Ontario’s Green Belt AND a Unesco World Biosphere Reserve. It is home to a diversity of species (including the at-risk Jefferson salamander), vital farmland, valuable parklands and conservation areas and important aquifers (water sources).
Is this worth protecting? We think so, and if you do too, we ask you to stand with PERL, BurlingtonGreen and CORE Burlington, a non-profit organization of volunteers united to protect the beautiful and biodiverse Mt. Nemo area.
Show your support by ordering a lawn sign from CORE, and please email or write to the Mayor and Burlington Council Members to voice your support for the protection of this important area.
