Help us protect our pristine, beautiful piece of Northern Ontario, home to one of Canada's Densest Blanding's Turtle Populations!
Our group, North Shore Environment Resource Advocates Inc., is looking to raise about $35,000 as we have retained a lawyer to help us in our mission: to protect this critical population of Blanding's turtles and the diverse environment within and around the proposed quarry site. Lake Lauzon is located near this site. It is where many of us live, drink the water, swim and fish. We enjoy the fresh air that all of us in the area of the proposed quarry breathe. So please help us protect the turtles and leave a healthy environment for the generations of family and friends who will follow us.

On September 10, 2009 the Eastern whip-poor-will (Antrostomus vociferus) was added to the list of Species at Risk in Ontario; its “threatened” status means it is likely to become endangered if steps are not taken to protect it. Why is it so threatened? One of the main threats is loss of habitat. Head over to our page on the whip-poor-whill, to read more about the whip-poor-will in the summer 2019 edition of ON nature!
