Snapshot

Celebrated eco-activist, superb reporter and best-selling author, Bob Hunter is a Canadian icon. In 2006 Bob Hunter Memorial Park, an extension to Rouge National Urban Park, was opened in his memory. 

However, the signage for the Park is now tired and faded – it no longer serves its purpose. At Small Change Fund we think Bob and his memory deserve better. 

Donate today to help us raise funds to replace this signage and celebrate Bob’s tireless work for the environment.

Story

Bob Hunter Memorial Park is a 500-acre provincial park, part of the Rouge National Urban Park in Ontario. Upon becoming a Park, the land was re-naturalized and it serves as important habitat for native species, as well as a popular public trail destination. The Park celebrates the life of Robert Hunter, an environmentalist, journalist and author who devoted his career to protecting biodiversity and nature. 

Since the Park’s official opening in August 2006, the original signage has faded so that it is hardly legible. In loving memory and recognition of Bob Hunter, we are fundraising to replace the signage so that it better honours this Canadian icon and continues to educate visitors on Bob’s life and the importance of protecting nature.

Will you help us celebrate Bob and his lifetime of environmental stewardship? 

The new signage will be designed and installed in partnership with Parks Canada, with full participation by, and approval from, Bob’s family. The signs will provide information on Bob and his work, as well as the ecological diversity of the Park.
