A local conservation group has announced the results of a six-week fundraising campaign.
Think Turtle Conservation Initiative, a L’Amable-based organization dedicated to preserving Ontario’s turtle population, ran its “Good Turn” fundraiser from November 12th to December 24th. The fundraiser collected money for the 1st Bancroft Scouting Group, a local organization that runs outdoor camping activities and other programs for kids.
Half the money from the organization’s “Watch 4 Turtles” car magnet sales during the six-week time frame were put towards the fundraiser, with the final total coming out to $552.50. The Scouting Group is putting the money towards a trip to an international scouting event in Switzerland next summer.
