The Essex Region Conservation Foundation (ERCF) was established in 1977 with a vital goal to receive and maintain funds for charitable, educational, conservation, and heritage purposes related to the conservation, restoration, development, and management of natural and heritage resources in the Essex region, so that it remains the Place for Life.
Improving our environment to enrich our lives.
The Essex Region is a sustainable, resilient and vibrant place with healthy and thriving watersheds, Great Lakes, and a green culture.
