Problem: Springwater Provincial Park is slated to be effectively closed by April 2013: no animals, garbage pickup, maintenance, washrooms, supervision or vehicle traffic. This is the third attempt to unilaterally alter our heritage which dates back to the park’s founding in October 1905.
The SPCC invites individuals, families, and their existing community groups to join in our efforts.
How to do so will be spelled out on this weblog.
Springwater Park Citizens’ Coalition, SPCC
Mission: To protect, restore and enhance the quality of the Springwater Provincial Park lands experience.
We will accomplish this by building on the core technical and community expertise in: primary and continuing education, indigenous animal preservation, military veterans’ appreciation, sustainable planning, and nature conservancy. Services will be offered on a long term economically sustainable manner with a particular focus on providing access to our most vulnerable citizens.
We look forward to co-operating with the federal, provincial, county, municipal, first nations, religious, media, conservatory and business partners as we move forward toward a sustainable business model.
The human community alone creates and changes institutions. Our character is revealed in how we treat the world that gives and supports our life. We will explore, evaluate and implement innovative public-private management agreements while respecting the host community’s cultural heritage.
The Springwater Park Citizens’ Coalition invites those that share these goals to work with us toward a shared, renewed and sustainable relationship with the air, water, earth, forest, animal and human environments.
