CORE (Conserve Our Rural Environment
) was incorporated in 2002 to confront the threat of a proposed gravel pit
on the east side of Airport Road, south of County Road 21.
That was just the beginning: CORE has since taken on wind turbines
crowding rural homes and views on the Niagara Escarpment; the loss of protection for the Escarpment
(important enough to be recognized as a UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve
) and also works with our Township, County and Provincial governments to ensure protection of our aquifers
, forests and agricultural heritage.
