BRACEBRIDGE, ON – Muskoka Brewery and the urban sustainability organization Evergreen have announce the launch of a new initiative to help protect fresh water sources in Ontario.
The Muskoka Brewery & Evergreen Fresh Water Grant Project will provide funding to three non-profit groups – Lake Ontario Waterkeeper, Muskoka Conservancy and Ottawa Riverkeeper – to help them “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.”
“As a brewery lucky enough to be based in Muskoka, we draw so much inspiration from the natural wilderness that surrounds us,” said Gary McMullen, President of Muskoka Brewery, in a statement. “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.”
