Raising wetlands awareness

IKANAWTIKET in conjunction with the Engineering Department at Dalhousie University’s Faculty of Agriculture, developed a new portable lab to help explain the value of wetlands and how they work. Alton supported development of the lab which travels to schools and community events in Nova Scotia.

Brookfield Fire Department

We provided funding to the Brookfield Fire Department for an emergency trailer and six 50-foot lengths of fire discharge hose. We recognize that the department’s fire protection, emergency, and safety educational services are essential to Brookfield and nearby communities.
