GRCA Nature Centre Gets Big Boost From Publican
By Mercury staff
GUELPH — Bob Desautels believes it's critical to educate children about the environment.
To that end, the Guelph publican/restaurateur is putting a hearty chunk of money — a $50,000 pot of it — toward a new building for the Guelph Lake Nature Centre Complex.
The facility at Guelph Lake will teach kids about nature and how to care for it.
Desautels is president of Neighbourhood Group of Restaurants, which owns the Woolwich Arrow Pub and Borealis Grille and Bar in Guelph, as well as a second Borealis in Kitchener. The donation is on behalf of the pub and the restaurants.
"We believe this is an investment for the future," said Desautels in a Grand River Conservation Authority release. "Educating children about the environment is absolutely critical."
Giving kids the proper tools to care for the environment is vital if we hope to change the way we think about and treat the natural world, and to ensure a sustainable future, he indicated.
The funds are going toward a new building which the Grand River Conservation Authority is developing. Like the current structure, which is getting old, the new facility will overlook the lake.
Natural features will be incorporated into the design, and nature trails will extend out from the building itself, offering educational adventures through the surrounding forest.
"The moment visitors arrive at the new complex, we want them to feel a deep connection to nature," Dave Bennett, director of operations with the conservation authority, says in the release. "We want this facility to be a place where students experience nature and return with their families to teach them what they learned."
Other donations have come in for the project from Ken and Marilyn Murray, Bill and Mimi Hamilton, Ann Guthrie, and Terra View Homes.
To learn how you can support the new facility, contact Sara Wilbur, executive director of the Grand River Conservation Foundation at email@example.com or at 519-621-2763 Ext. 2271.

When you ask Bob Desautels how important it is to educate children about the environment, he’ll use one word to describe it: critical.
He doesn’t use this word lightly and his actions speak loudly to reinforce that with a $50,000 commitment to the new Guelph Lake Nature Centre Complex on behalf of the Woolwich Arrow Pub and Borealis Restaurants in Guelph and Kitchener.
“We believe this is an investment for the future,” said Desautels. “Educating children about the environment is absolutely critical.”
He is adamant that it is the children, our next generation, who will continue the work of changing our treatment of the natural world and help create a sustainable future if they’re given the right tools to start with.
The new Guelph Lake Nature Centre Complex, being developed by the Grand River Conservation Authority, overlooking Guelph Lake, will be much more than just a new building. The new centre has incorporated significant changes to the surrounding landscape into the design. Nature trails will stretch out from the building itself, taking students and visitors on educational journeys through the adjacent forest. Natural features surrounding the facility will be designed to ensure students get the most out of their outdoor experience.
“The moment visitors arrive at the new Complex, we want them to feel a deep connection to nature,” says Dave Bennett, Director of Operations with the GRCA. “We want this facility to be a place where students experience nature and return with their families to teach them what they learned.”
This contribution to the Grand River Conservation Foundation, the GRCA’s charitable foundation, joins others made toward the Centre by donors including Ken and Marilyn Murray, Bill and Mimi Hamilton, Ann Guthrie, and Terra View Homes.
