BRACEBRIDGE, Sept. 6, 2016 – Muskoka Brewery and Evergreen, a leading not-for-profit in urban sustainability, are partnering on a new program to protect Ontario’s biodiversity and fresh water sources.
The Muskoka Brewery & Evergreen Fresh Water Grant Project will empower three non-profit organizations to restore native plants in riparian, wetland and shoreline areas, collect water quality data points, and engage the public in the care of local water systems.
Muskoka Brewery will donate $24,000 to help fund their projects and realize a shared goal of stewarding 6300 km2 of watershed, engaging 300 volunteers and planting 50 native plants.
“As a brewery lucky enough to be based in Muskoka, we draw so much inspiration from the natural wilderness that surrounds us,” says Gary McMullen, President, Muskoka Brewery. “We want to do our part to ensure Ontario’s lakes, rivers, trees and shorelines are preserved and protected for future generations to come. Clean, safe water is vital for our beer and the communities we serve.”
