The Lac du Bonnet Wildlife Association (LdBWA) has a proven track record for completing large scale projects. We recently completed a four-year project in the development of the Lac du Bonnet Wildlife Trout Ponds and 1.5 km Interpretive Hiking trails at a cost of over $200,000. This project was completed on time and under budget. The majority of the work was completed by volunteers and funded through the various fund-raising activities the club holds throughout the year.
Funding for the Outdoor Education Centre (OEC) will come from various sources, as well as, being raised through the various activities of the LdBWA for both initial and maintenance costs. Much of the construction and maintenance will be completed by volunteers. The initial budget for the OEC is over $275,000. Of this amount over 85% has been raised or committed.
The LdBWA has developed a recognition program for our sponsors and donors and will maintain a record of all donations. Sponsors will be recognized on the LdBWA website and in press releases during construction. Upon completion of the overall project, a sponsor’s board will be erected on site.
