Oct 11, 2018 -

RBC Foundation donated $15,000 from its Environmental Program to reduce shoreline erosion, minimize nutrient run-off and trap phosphorus-bound particulate in urbanized areas within North Bay-Mattawa Conservation Authority’s jurisdiction through the Restore Your Shore program.  The RBC funds help with the cost of 15 plantings in urbanized areas, utilizing 1,575 native trees, shrubs and herbaceous plant species suited to the site conditions. 

The Restore Your Shore Program is in its fourth year, engaging shoreline property owners in the stewardship of their shorelines.
