The North Bay- Mattawa Conservation Authority (NBMCA) is offering the public an opportunity to pay tribute to a person(s), organization or occasion by making a donation towards a picnic table or bench in one our Conservation Areas.
Benches have long been a traditional element in park settings and along trails. Benches benefit all age groups by providing a resting place as well as a place to sit while enjoying the natural surroundings.
