EXETER, ON, APRIL 3, 2019 – Corteva Agriscience™, Agriculture Division of DowDuPont, is pleased to announce that as part of its Corporate Giving Grant program, $2,000 has been donated to the Ausable Bayfield Conservation Foundation in Exeter, Ontario. Funding from Corteva Agriscience™ supports the construction of the new pedestrian bridge on the South Huron Trail that links the Morrison Dam Conservation Area trail in rural South Huron with the MacNaughton-Morrison trail in Exeter.

“Our mission is to build partnerships that support conservation education and recreation within our watersheds,” said Peter Darbishire, director at Ausable Bayfield Conservation Foundation and member of the Pedestrian Trail Bridge Community Working Group. “The new pedestrian bridge will leave a legacy of community betterment for decades to come and provide numerous opportunities for education and activity.”
