As part of our Pledge to Protect marketing initiative we’ve designed billboards to be placed in strategic locations throughout the SLELO region. 

The billboards feature water and landscape scenes that signify the five pledge categories of the Pledge to Protect including- gardens, communities, forests, waters, lands/trails.

We plan to launch more billboards this year and would like to feature photos taken in the St. Lawrence Eastern Lake Ontario Region. So we’re hosting a photo contest in which winners will have their photos featured on some of our upcoming billboards.
