Transcript of Geography

Overall, Ancaster is an interesting, clean, safe unique, fun, exciting and beautiful place, which everyone has to go and visit to get the real experience of your life time!
Ancaster is a clean and safe place to visit but we do have concerns about the environment. In our region, climate has changed over the last 40 years. Temperatures are on the rise, the weather has been more warm and wet. The changing in our climate has caused erosion, drought, and flooding.
Another issue is that our waters are polluted. This is caused by air pollution from our vehicles, factories such as Dofasco, and litter. Another problem here in Ancaster is a watershed. This is when a land area drains to a common body of water. For example from a river or stream. When people throw garbage into a these bodies of water it all flows down to the bigger lakes. This is also polluiting.
We need to protect our environment and work together. For example the Hamilton Conservation Authority has a plan.
Ancaster offers activities for all ages all year long. Some of these activities include soccer, gymnastics, skating, cycling, hockey dance, golf, Swimming, baseball, volleyball, and basketball, Many take place at Morgan Firestone, Redeemer College, Spring Valley Arena and the Ancaster Business Park.
