A group that works to ensure the protection of land along the Bruce Trail – has received a major donation.
The Patrick J. McNally Charitable Foundation is committing $2 million toward the purchase of land along the 890-kilometre Ontario corridor.
The gift will be spread out over the next ten years and is just the latest from the McNally family to the Bruce Trail Conservancy – which has preserved over 11,000 acres since it began to acquire Niagara Escarpment lands in the 1970’s.
Patrick McNally was a pioneering contractor – whose company specialized in road engineering and tunnelling.
He passed away last year in Waterdown – at the age of 101.
