Charlottetown’s 100 Women Who Care group recently elected to make their quarterly charitable donation to Island Nature Trust. The funds will be used to develop serenity areas for PEI veterans suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder. Island Nature Trust will be working directly with veterans and their families, friends, and support systems to create spaces within their natural areas that are accessible, safe, and free from traffic or technological noises.
The first area they hope to create is in their Jenkins Complex Natural Area, which is 500 acres of ponds and forest located east of Charlottetown in Mount Albion. The Complex was donated by the late Harold Jenkins. There is lots of work to do including installing boardwalks and a walking bridge and developing and installing signage.
