Early Bird Auction runs from August 29 – September 11


Some of our area’s most celebrated wild places—from the Blue Mountains to Beaver Valley—are under threat by mega-developments like Castle Glen and Talisman. 

This is our natural heritage. Want to keep the Niagara Escarpment green and protected? Join the Escarpment Corridor Alliance. We have the power and the vision to protect our area, along the top of all local ski areas, through to Beaver Valley.


Sign the petition to let the provincial government know our community is demanding action, and we need it now. Our petition:

1 Calls upon the Ontario provincial government enact legislation which would prevent large-scale development on the Escarpment lands (such as the proposed subdivision on the 1,500 acres of the Castle Glen Forest); and

2 Demands that the Ontario government permanently protect this environmentally significant ecosystem through legislation and committed funding which creates interconnected corridors of natural spaces for shared wildlife and recreational uses.


The Castle Glen Forest

The historic Castle Glen Forest above Collingwood comprises 1,500 acres of forest, streams, and wetlands. This will become a huge subdivision unless we work together to put an end to these plans. The developer is taking action. Are you? Learn more HERE.

It could all be gone. Forever.

The Talisman Lands

Grey County sold this 134-acre swath of public fields and forest gracing Beaver Valley to a Toronto-based developer, despite a higher bid from the Escarpment Biosphere Conservancy. The developer is taking action. Are you? Learn more HERE.

Land Acknowledgement

We are grateful to live, work, and learn on the traditional territory of the Haudenosaunee, Ojibway, and Anishinabek. This territory is covered by the Upper Canada Treaties. 

We acknowledge and deeply appreciate their historic connection to this place since time immemorial. We also recognize the contributions that Haudenosaunee, Ojibway, Anishinabek, and other Indigenous peoples have made, both in shaping and strengthening this community in particular, and our province and country as a whole.

This recognition of the contributions and historic importance of Indigenous peoples must also be clearly and overtly connected to our collective commitment to do our part to advance reconciliation in our communities. We must work together to ensure our communities advance relationships with Indigenous peoples built on meaningful consultation rooted in truth and imbued with justice.
