A healthy environment is critical to Simcoe County’s future.
Farmland, water and natural heritage are key components of a healthy environment and thriving economy, and need better protection.
The Simcoe County Greenbelt Coalition is calling for the expansion of the Greenbelt to Simcoe County, so that current and future generations can benefit from clean water, local food and green spaces.
Help protect farmland, water, and the environment.
