The Bruce Trail from Niagara to Tobermory What is the Bruce Trail Conservancy? Where Can I Get on the Trail? Who is the Bruce Trail Run By? Where Can You Camp on the Bruce Trail? Why Should I Donate to the Bruce Trail Conservancy? Work Cited The Bruce Trail is Canada's oldest and longest public footpath that runs along the Niagara Escarpment in Ontario from Niagara to Tobermory. The trail is about 900km long! The Bruce Trail is a charitable organization trying to help conserve its natural ecosystem. This trail promotes environmentally responsible public access to World Biosphere Reserves. There are indisputably hundreds of points of access along the trail. The beautiful route follows the natural edge of the Niagara Escarpment. To find some points of access you can order a copy of the map online, get one from the head office or even at public libraries. The Bruce Trail is a charitable, non-governmental organization run entirely by a volunteer "Board of Directors". These volunteers help keep the trail pristine and spotless free of any trash or imperfections. The volunteers also take care of all memberships and fund raising programs. There are nine Regional Bruce Trail Clubs which hold the responsibility of regional maintenance, stewardship and all the promotion for the Bruce Trail. They are also run entirely by volunteers as well. There are many beautiful sights to see and explore along the Bruce Trail such as, Bruce's Caves, The Spirit Rocks, The Jack Poste Side Trail, The Devil's Monument, Cyprus Lake and many more. You can experience different terrains like mountains, bodies of water, flat land and others depending on what time of the year you go; the trail is open all year. There is a very wide variety of wildlife on the trail. There are over 300 species of birds, 53 types of mammals, 90 kinds of fish and in plantlife there is over 1500 types of plants found along the trail! You can find limited camping on the trail, however, if you sleep anywhere else on the trail it is considered trespassing which can lead to much trouble. The trail provides drop offs and pick-ups that the accommodation owners work to make sure you have a good visit to the trail. When you donate to the Bruce Trail it helps prevent the loss of private grounds which are for sale along the trail's conservation area at the moment. By donating it helps to keep up the natural diversity of the Niagara Escarpment. You can donate by becoming a member or you can donate online at the Bruce Trail's official donating page: https://brucetrail.org/donations/donate
For the more dedicated environmentalists, you can also leave a "planned gift" like, putting the conservancy in your will for future generations, or leaving tangible property for the conservancy to build on. However, that would only be for very devoted people willing to give back to the community. http://www.brucetrail.org/pages/where-can-i-get-a-map
