News Release       
For Immediate Release

St. Thomas - The Active Elgin Coalition, in partnership with the Lower Thames Valley, Kettle Creek and Catfish Creek Conservation Authorities, announced the winners of the Active Elgin online survey. Each winner received a season's pass to one of the three Conservation Authorities where they can enjoy the various hiking trails throughout the conservation areas.

The presentation was held at Springwater Conservation Area, on March 7, 2013. The winners are Carla Cunha - Catfish Creek Season's Pass, Kathie Chute - Kettle Creek Season's Pass, and Scott Carter - Lower Thames Valley Season's Pass (for the Longwoods Road Conservation Area only).

Results from the survey indicated that 86% of respondents had a keen interest in having trail maps on the Active Elgin website and 64% were interested in having information on physical activity and health. Hiking is a great way to be physically active while spending time outdoors and close to nature and wildlife.

Visit the Active Elgin website at or the Active Elgin Guide for information on the various activities that are provided at each of the Conservation Areas.
