The Ministry of Natural Resources and the Credit Valley Conservation Authority may not permit the restoration of the Hillsburgh Upper Mill Pond after it is drained for road repairs. Although it is privately owned, the community has enjoyed its presence for over 100 years.
It has become a habitat for Trumpeter Swans, the Eastern Snapping Turtle, Great Blue Herons, and many many other species. Only if we can show its importance to the community will its restoration be considered.
We, the undersigned, wish to express our concern that the Upper Mill Pond in Hillsburgh will not be restored after repairs are made.
We believe it is important to our community and to our wildlife.
Restore the Pond!
