As proud Friends of the Match, South Nation Conservation (SNC) is pleased to participate in the 2015 International Plowing Match and Rural Expo (IPM) taking place September 22-26 on Concession 3-4 Road in Finch.

“We are thrilled to be part of such a large agricultural event that will bring thousands of visitors to Eastern Ontario, showcasing the best that this area has to offer,” said Natasha Machado, Communications Specialist.

SNC’s outdoor themed display will be located in the Stormont, Dundas and Glengarry Showcase tent, together with various other partner organizations. Our booth will feature recreational opportunities in our jurisdiction and throughout Eastern Ontario.

“Come visit our display to discover the endless outdoor opportunities available such as hiking, geocaching, canoeing and fishing”, Machado mentioned. Staff will also be available to answer landowner questions about our programs and services.

Source Water Protection will also have a coordinated presence at the 2015 IPM, providing a water bottle refill station, with public access to drinking water. SNC and Raisin Region Conservation Authority continue to work with local municipalities to implement their source protection plan. Staff will be on hand throughout the match discussing the importance of protecting source water.

To accommodate the increasing numbers of visitors to Finch, the SNC Administration Office will offer extended hours, opening earlier and staying open later during the IPM. The office will be open from 7:30am-6:00pm from Monday through Saturday, except on Thursday when the office will be open until 7 p.m.

Throughout the past three years, SNC has continued to offer support and free, state of the art meeting spaces for the various IPM Committees and we are looking forward to the beginning of the match!

“The IPM is a great opportunity to connect with residents and visitors regarding the many services and programs that we offer to improve our local environment.”
