The Oak Ridges Moraine Conservation Area just got a little bit bigger.
New Tecumseth Council has donated 101 acres of forest land, just south of Beeton.
Councillor Marc Biss made the announcement at New Tecumseth Council Monday night (feb 12).
The donation did come with a price tag.
Councillor Biss says the town set aside $50,000 to cover legal fees, site planning and any possible fencing or other costs associated with the transaction.
The Oak Ridges Moraine is an environmentally sensitive, geological landform in South Central Ontario, covering approximately 470,000 acres.
